--Ok, this one is really bugging the crap out of me. I've got one notebook, and one desktop computer running a dual boot Ubuntu lucid. And I've also got the same issue in puppy linux, on the desktop. For some odd reason I can burn iso and data disks, but I lock up my burning software (whatever it is) when I try to burn an audio disk (I haven't tried burning a DVDs yet because I don't want to fry them)

At any rate, I'm at a loss as this seems to be a cross platform issue I don't know where to start. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

--On a side note a floppy drive keeps showing up on my desktop, which would be fine if I had a floppy drive, and my 2nd CDrom drive won't work at all in Ubuntu (always shows 1.1g of storage in disk manager), but works in Puppy. Anyway, these aren't as critical, at least not the floppy thing, but they've had me scratching my noggin for a bit.

Here's a hard ware info short dump for the desktop, I'll be happy to oblige if anybody wants further info:
