Unless someone has the same model and tries it, that's not much to go
Many (all?) of the GUI burning software are front ends to a command line
program that does the actual work.
Why don't you try burning a disc in a terminal using wodim, cdrecord,
growisofs, etc., and take advantage of any verbose and/or debug options.
Even if it fails, it may provide useful information for you to get it
working, or at least to provide to the burning software and/or Linux
kernel developers so they can add (full) support for your drive.
Cdrkit (a collection of programs) is based on cdrecord (also a collection
of programs), but works differently. If one does not work, try the other
- ...if you don't have a problem with the "...controversy" sections
covered in the Cdrtools Wikipedia page.
Once you've got a working terminal program, then use a GUI that can
control that. (and post a follow-up here for future readers)
