I'd need more info for reproducing:

What way of burning you used - already prepared iso, files or a video project?
If that were some public data and you can provide a link to the iso for example, it would help.

Is the problem occurring every-time or it happened only once?

Does it happen with other data as well or is it an iso-specific for example?

It was a new project - data project-DVD.
I used multiple folders with audio (flac) files.
The media was DVD+R.
Maximum speed.
The process of burning was *very* slow.

It happened more than once, in fact, most of the time, with different media and different folders.

It's hardly possible to find a fix for that, since there is too little information available.

But I think the real problem is somewhere else. readom is a utility in wodim package, which is a subpackage of cdrkit. cdrkit/wodim/readom does a good job when burning CDs, but fails relatively often while burning DVDs. Since cdrkit project does not have very active upsteram, it won't be better in the future probably.

However, we have better packages to burn DVDs in Fedora, such as libburn or dvd+rw-tools. So my question is, why brasero doesn't use these packages to burn DVDs by default?

I'm closing this bug, because we're probably not able to get some relevant information to solve this problem. 

I've also opened a new request for brasero to use a better back-end utility to burn DVDs, see bug #806340.
