Try fiddling with the cables to the drive.  Replug them.  Move the data
cable around in the computer case.

I thought that I had specified it before, but, according to your
message, I did not explain this in an explicit way.

Under Windows (XP), I am able to read, and write, on any CD or DVD
medium, whatever the writer. I am thus fully able to use the
Linux-problematic CD-DVD-writer under Windows XP. That proves that
cables and related stuff are correctly done. That is the main problem:
Linux cannot make it, while Windows can make it, for once.

Can you send a fresh dmesg and HAL output? (reboot; dmesg > dmesg.txt, lshal > hal.txt; send both *.txt as an attachment)
