The download is good. I made sure to do the checksum before burning the

I already tried that: it won't boot.

Brasero and K3B both use growisofs and wodim on the backend. Burning DVD- is a different process from burning DVD+; substantially different at the physical media, and thus different bugs are exposed.

Jorg Schilling's own cdrecord utilities may work more reliably for DVD- burning (he says they should work better for all burning, but I haven't tested that). YMMV. Jorg is not as gracious about the differences and about the issue as I am being here; you can read it all for yourself and decide for yourself what to do about that.... but using his cdrecord suite is guaranteed to make your system not 100% upstream EL compatible.... at least in terms of those utilities.

I know a client of mine has had multiple problems with Brasero and certain brands of media, mostly DVD-, when I haven't had issues, but using DVD+ almost exclusively. I'm probably going to rip out wodim completely, and try out Jorg's mkisofs and cdrecord instead, and see if that fixes the problem. But I digress.
