I have been trying to burn a few ISOs lately with no success and have certainly used this hardware in the past, so I am not sure what's going on. I am using DVD-R media (tried multiple discs) which appears to be supported by my drive. Here is the error I received in GnomeBaker on Fedora 14 (64):

Does anyone have any ideas as to what caused this? I just reinstalled Fedora today (for other reasons) and I am still unable to burn a DVD. I am using Memorex DVD-R discs, and have tried different ones. The drive appears to read media just fine.
