Yes, it appears as similar problem, i.e. recording size is not divisible
by 32KB, it's DAO recording and the last write appears timing out. Can
you verify if workaround at the end of
http://www.mail-archive.com/cdwrite@other.debian.org/msg12357.html helps
in your case too? As far as I understand K3b offers DAO as GUI
check-box, so you can as well let it be in order to make it work with
your unit.

It's of greater relevance/interest to look at dvd+rw-mediainfo for
*resulting* recording, not for blank media. There you should be able to
confirm that READ CAPACITY and/or lead-out position are adequate,
recording size / 2048 to be specific.

Thanks for submission. A.
