Simply click cancel will make the cd blank, i have try with some new an used CD-RW disc but stilk no luck. I'm on Raring.

Sounds like a bug with brasero. You can try using K3b. – Max Tither Jun 15 '13 at 17:10
I ll give K3b a try – Nur Jun 16 '13 at 3:55

First solution:

Just disable the checksum: Open Brasero > Edit > Plugins > Uncheck Image Checksum.

Second solution:

Install cdrdao and this should solve the problem. Unfortunately, it can't solve it in the middle of the burning process.

sudo apt-get install cdrdao

Doesn't work either, still stuck at 100% even when checksum is disabled but this time my CD keep spinning in the drive. Looks like my CD writer isn't compatible with Ubuntu, guess I better buy a new one, modern hardware tends to work better in Linux. – Nur Nov 23 '13 at 2:45
On the other place someone suggested to use k3b. But that's already becomes too far from simply using the native apps... – valk Nov 23 '13 at 9:16
