Failures with cdrecord

All of a sudden I'm finding myself unable to burn a cd rom with
cdrecord. I'm having the same problem on three different systems, each
of which is running fully updated FC5. The cdrecord on each of these
machines is cdrecord-, unchanged since March last. I'm
also quite certain that I had no problems burning back around the
beginning of May. I've tried a few different discs, and scsi, ide, usb
and firewire burners--all with the similar failures like the following:

cmd finished after 0.001s timeout 200s
write track pad data: error after 0 bytes

cdrecord: A write error occured.
cdrecord: Please properly read the error message above.
Writing  time:   11.980s
Average write speed   9.1x.
Fixating time:    0.003s
cdrecord: fifo had 64 puts and 1 gets.
cdrecord: fifo was 0 times empty and 0 times full, min fill was 100%.

Is it me? My media? Or something in some library? I've downversioned two
kernels, but still get the same failure.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
