It should be able to do so. So why does it not ?

> libburn : SORRY : Asynchronous SCSI error on SYNCHRONIZE CACHE: [3 0C 00] Write error

Probably libburn should not synchronize after the failed track
Is the medium still reported as blank ?
E.g. by line "Media status :" in the output of

  xorriso -outdev /dev/sr0 -toc

If so, then please repeat the attempt with -report_about set to "ALL".

  xorriso -report_about ALL ...your.other.xorriso.arguments...

This should show us the SCSI error which led to the message about
the failed track reservation.

Even more verbous would be a run with a log of SCSI commands and replies:

  xorriso -report_about ALL -scsi_log on \
          ...your.other.xorriso.arguments... \
          2>&1 | tee -i /tmp/xorriso.log

The file /tmp/xorriso.log would be of interest then.

xorriso 0.5.6 is about 3 years old. If we have to make code experiments,
then it will be necessary to get and build
(No fear, dependencies are sparse.)

Well, i once changed it from "for" to "since" on request of a native
speaker of english.
Maybe one should make a poll (like Hurd Francais currently does for
"computer bought the farm").

Have a nice day :)
