My experience not quite as yours as did not claim drive failed, but when I tried to burn photos onto a CD/DVD directly from iPhoto, it claims I have isufficient HDD and required >100GB of space. the more photos I select, the more space I required (>500GB). When I check out the help, seems with iPhoto '11, it does NOT support burning photos directly from iPhotos anymore but have to export the photos and using Finder to select the exported photos and burn CD from there.
Very inconvenient!!! I was expecting to be able to burnt a CD quickly within 30 minutes including importing from my camera, now has taken me over 1.5 hours and duplicating space on my HDD for the exported photos. I think Apple made a really bad move with iPohoto '11 relating to this function.Mac Book Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.5)
I have a very smimilar issue. When attempting to burn a cd from iphoto (ilife'11) I get the following error message.
"The burn to the HL-DT-ST DVDRW GA11N drive failed. The disc drive didn’t respond properly and can’t recover or retry."
However when I export the photos to the desktop and burn from there it worked properly. I looked on the apple support website and don't that there are any issues when burning from ilife '11.
I hope this isnt a feature that has been removed.
can you help?iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.5), 27"model
Similar issue here. I get this message every time I try to burn a dual layer disc without fail.

Delete the iPhoto preference file, com.apple.iPhoto.plist, that resides in your User/Library/Preferences folder, launch iPhoto and try again.
NOTE: If you're moved your library from its default location in your Home/Pictures folder you will have to point iPhoto to its new location when you next open iPhoto by holding the the Option key. You'll also have to reset the iPhoto's various preferences.3Ghz iMac, 4G RAM, 1TB HD; MBP 2.16 Ghz 2G RAM; 1.5TB/160GB HDs;, Mac OS X (10.6.5), Canon:i850/8600F, Epson R280; 4G Nano, 30G Video iPod; iPad 3G
