How old is your burner?  Do you have any reasons to believe that it
might be damaged or failing?

The reasons that I'm asking those questions is because I've seen similar
errors from an old Mitsumi burner.  It slowly became unusable as the
errors (and resulting "coasters") became more and more frequent.

Burners are cheap these days, I'd consider buying (or borrowing from a
friend) another one and see if that fixes things.
