Run these commands sequentially in terminal.
sudo apt-get install dvd+rw-tools
growisofs -Z /dev/sr0=/path/name.iso
If you get input/output error or I/O error example
[ PERFORM OPC failed with SK=4h/TRACK FOLLOWING ERROR]: Input/output error /dev/sr0: "Current Write Speed" is 8.2x1352KBps.)
Use this command
growisofs -dvd-compat -speed=2 -Z /dev/sr0=/path/name.iso
I know speed is quite slow but its quite stable configuration and its most likely to work, but you can experiment with the values
I tried this method on DVD-R x16 dvd on my dvd writer HL-DT-STDVDRAM GT33N, LE01, max UDMA/66
NOTE: This method did help many users but in my case ,the image did get burned onto dvd, as i could notice the colour difference, but for some reason the disc still shows as blank, and my bios isn't recognizing that the DVD contains Ubuntu live CD
