Interesting to know growisofs worked but wodim didn't. I'd suggest you trace 
down the problem and/or file a bug against wodim and other apps that failed. So 
that they are able to handle whatever the problem was in the manner growisofs 
does or failing that, error out in a meaningful manner which would point to the 
source of the problem.

As for the second error also file a bug against growisofs or debug it further 
and file a bug against the right component (most likely would turn out to be a 
problem with HAL or udev).

I'd suggest getting a re-writeable CD/DVD media tho' :)

PS: Please *do* file a bug even if you aren't that much into debugging. Lack of 
bugs is what causes others to comment -- it works on windows but doesn't on linux.
