wodim saved my day and wrote the xubuntu 64 bit iso at last

I had problems with burning dvds both with xfburn and with brasero too

One of the errors  was
SCSI error on write(0,16): [3 73 03] Power calibration area error

Another problem was that burn completed the writing in xfburn but when reading and checking the md5 for the dvd

dd bs=1M if=/dev/sr0 of=/tmp/iso
