And as soon as I sent the above the burn actually failed:
9682092032/24756879360 (39.1%) @0.9x, remaining 64:22 RBU 100.0% UBU 96.9%
:-( unable to WRITE at LBA=4829a0h: Input/output error
:-( write failed: Input/output error
/dev/cdrom: flushing cache
:-( unable to FLUSH CACHE: Input/output error
:-( unable to SYNCHRONOUS FLUSH CACHE: Input/output error
That's the first time I've had a 0.9 speed burn fail :-(
