Use different media, either a different brand or a different type.  If you
are using DVD+Plus media, definitely try DVD-Dash media, as some burning
software doesn't know about DVD+Plus (and apparantly some burners try to
cope with DVD-Dash commands burning DVD+Plus media).

Upgrade your burner's firmware, from the manufacturer's (vendor's) web
site.  Such upgrades will teach the burner about current media
characteristics.  Even a "new" burner should be upgraded, and a "new"
burner can easily be over a year old.

Burn at a lower speed.

The .isos must be on a hard drive somewhere.  Fedora can read them across a
network via NFS or HTTP (if you serve them), or locally from EXT2/3 or from
FAT32.
