burncd ``only wrote -1...'' coasting discs.

I've tried to burn ISOs on a number of occassions using the burncd
utility.  I use the command ``burncd -s max -f /dev/acd0c data foo.iso
fixate'' (as I always have done), but this fails /very/ quickly with the
following message:

next writeable LBA 0
writing from file disc1.iso size 646272 KB
written this track 832 KB (0%) total 832 KB
only wrote -1 of 32768 bytes: Device busy

fixating CD, please wait..

  I posted a while back and was told it might be because I was running
5.1-RELEASE and a lot of code had changed.  Right now I'm running
4.9-RELEASE (with the same problems).

  This is a new DVD-RW drive (a TEAC DV-W50E) that /does/ support a form
of buffer underrun (I think it is BurnProof -- Nero burns discs just
great under XP).  Any idea what this could be?
