Ok, but I'm getting nearly the same error with cdrecord.

cdrecord -blank=all -eject dev=toshiba seemed to work ok.
cdrecord dev=toshiba cd1.iso didn't complain
but then mount /cdrom produced
acd0: READ_BIG - MEDIUM ERROR asc=0x15 ascq=0x00 error=0x00

Man pages for burncd and cdrecord don't mention error codes.  I looked briefly 
in the source and didn't see a header file referenced with the codes.

I'm using Memorex CD-RW media in a Toshiba DVD-RW drive and this combo works 
under WinXP with Roxio, so I know the drive and media work.

Can someone tell me where to find the meanings of these codes?
