I have the same problem with k3b.
It starts fine, md5sum is ok. But after a while it fails.
I get a "write failed: Input/Output error" after 1Gb or 2Gb
And it happends with my Debian Sarge but also with a Mandrake10.0
I do not know what it is.
If someone knows about a possible solution I would like to hear it.

Has someone already succeeded to burn a DVD iso image (+/- 4 Gb) ???
