1. You likely did this but just in case, just k3b's perms setup/
2. Check all related perms (dvdrecord, cdr* etc).
3. See if you can complete a burn as root (if you can, it's a perm problem)
4. Also try burning at half the adverted speed.
Because of today's corner cutting standards, disks are not always adverted 

Let us know what happens and good luck,
