I'm having a bad month. My harddrive died and I lost ALOT of data that is
gonna take time to get back, I didn't have a good backup policy. I now
have installed a cd-rewriter into my box, and plan to burn a cd once a
week or so. My problem is that I can't seem to get it working...

burncd: ioctl(CDIOCSTART): Input/output error
When I burn with a normal cdr disc, it works fine. I gives the above
errors for cdrw discs.
What does this mean? How do I fix it? A search on google and the mail
list doesn't exactly report a slew of questions or answers.
