I've made successful DVD burns using Libranet 3's K3B.  As previously 
mentioned, I have a Plextor 716 and 2 x 712's.
All have had their firmware flashed.  I use Verbatim 16 X DVD-R media.

I use Nero Linux now on all my installs simply because I've gotten used 
to its interface.
There is a peculiar bug in the Nero Linux package that will cause 
Libranet 3's Adminmenu to crap out.
I don't know if it affects other Debians.

Here is the fix; it is really trivial.  All you need is to type in one 
"."  :-)

To correct interference with Adminmenu Lib 3.0

Go to:
Find "nerolinux":

 NeroLINUX uses Nero 6.6's embedded API to bring Nero's powerful
CD/DVD-writer functions to the Linux Desktop.
