In my case, the CD burns without problem however, I get that error.  
Googling found me a few other people with a similar issue.  Have you
tried the CD afterwords to see if it works anyway?  

Out of curiosity, is it a Plextor drive, I think everyone who had a
problem was running into it with Plextors.  

Some people, like myself, only get the annoying error message and
everything is fine, others find that it doesn't work at all.
