Are you burning the iso images as a single file, or creating a cd from the iso images?
I've done mostly ISO files. But for the files that I made CDRs of, it had like results.
I'm getting ready to burn a CDR with all ogg files on it. I'll report what it does on my work machine.
I haven't ever looked for an update to the burner's firmware yet. It might need an upgrade.
My ACER burner is a 12x8x32 speed unit. I got it when I was still using a 166 MHz packard bell machine.
It worked great until I upgraded to 8.0. Then there were disc errors present. At first, I wrote it off as a bad cd reader within my laptop. Then I saw errors on my work XP machine and on audio CDRs that I have burned. Before 8, they all worked excellent.
My reader is whatever comes with a PowerSpec computer. It is 52x max. It checksummed my phoebe discs alright. It was erratic with trying to install with them though. Sometimes the screen went blank and I had to ctl-alt-del my way out of the installer.
The same discs failed mediacheck on my laptop 490CDT Toshiba. They hunted and gave all sorts of errors. The discs would boot, but the discs weren't good to install with.
I tried to burn the discs on RH7.3 and the discs didn't fail the mediacheck on my laptop and then burned the same ISO for a test on phoebe3. It was full of errors. Except, I killed magicdev before the burning, so there were a few less erros reported on the disc. But not good enough to use.
For what it's worth I have an ACER CDR that I bought last Oct. It was working great and then I started getting some strange errors that I attributed to bad media. All of a sudden the the writer couldn't read any media. I took and back and they replaced it.
