Description of problem:
created large iso image 1.4G using mkisofs. Attempt to burn image with cdrecord
using command cdrecord -v -eject dev=0,0,0 -sao <iso filename>. Burning completes
successfully, however when attempting to copy the contents of the disk i receive io errors after 580 - 600Meg. Attempt several times to confirm error. All attempts are consistent. 
Reboot the machine and load 2.6.9-5.EL kernel and repeat process. Burn completes dsuccessfully and copy completes successfully.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cdrecord-2.01.1-5 & kernel-2.6.9-22.EL

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. using 2.6.9-22.EL make large iso image (over 1 gb) burn to dvd media
2. Mount dvd media
3. copy contents off of disk to fs

Actual Results:  cp fails read data off of media after approx. 580 - 600MB

Expected Results:  All data should be recoverable from dvd media

Additional info:

This bug does not seem to occur when using kernel 2.6.9-5.EL
