There was a dicussion regarding this issue on the cdwrite list and as I
recall, it is possible for the auto mounting processes to screw up a burn.

I have burned coasters when burning at a speed higher than the media was
identified. I think that cdrecord has been modified such that it won't
burn at a higher rate than the media is though.

I've not got any experience with dvd yet. With cd-r I've had good luck
with just about everything. TDK, Iomega, Verbatim, even some nonamed
disks that had no labels on the case or the disks themselves. I can't
recall the last time I burned a cd coaster.

the box I intend it to stay in. Once I do, we might start doing some
