    Problem burning image to DVD+R ("SCSI error on write(0,16): [3 73 03] Medium error.")

    I'm trying to burn an Ubuntu 13.10 Desktop image to a DVD+R using Brasero, but I get the following error every time
    Code:
    SCSI error on write(0,16): [3 73 03] Medium error. Power calibration area error.
    I've tried changing the write speed (changed it from max to 6x), and different DVD's, but nothing helps.

    I changed my /etc/fstab so the part about the drive looks like this
    Code:
    /dev/disk/by-id/ata-PBDS_DVD+_-RW_DH-16W1S /mnt/ata-PBDS_DVD+_-RW_DH-16W1S auto noauto 0 0
    Does anyone know what could cause this?

    Here is the log file from Brasero

    Re: Problem burning image to DVD+R ("SCSI error on write(0,16): [3 73 03] Medium erro

    This means that the drive cannot adjust its laser intensity so that the burned data are properly readable. This can either be caused by faulty media, or by a drive that is going bad. The failure with several media indicates that the problem might sit in the drive. Did you already try DVD types other than DVD+R ?

    I tried a DVD-R, and that wouldn't mount at all, even though the drive says it's DVD+/-RW. It's a old machine, so I guess it's just the drive going bad.
