Have you tried cdrecord? You pretty much only need to add ATAPICAM
to the kernel, although If you don't already have SCSI support on
the machine, you'll need to add that (cd, scbus, pass) too, of

Even if you get the same error, it'll provide much more detailed
diagnostic information (maybe there's a flag to burncd to switch
that on?).

What brand of blank are you using? There's some really cheesy
generics - and some even worse Chinese pirates - around...

Also, if the drive's firmware mis-identifies the blank, this could
cause it to use a poor (or downright wrong) strategy for it, which
likely would cause you problems as well.

Handy to have some RWs around for testing like this, too.

Good luck!
