problems recording DVD



Hi all, I'm having some trouble trying to record DVDs -RW and +RW. CDs get burned OK, but not DVDs. All this on a FC3 system.

Here's the info:

# uname -a
Linux linus 2.6.12-1.1376_FC3 #1 Fri Aug 26 23:27:26 EDT 2005 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

# dmesg | grep DVD
hdc: SONY DVD RW DW-G120A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hdd: 50X CD-ROM, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hdc: ATAPI 48X DVD-ROM DVD-R-RAM CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(66)

# dvd+rw-format -lead-out /dev/hdc
* DVD±RW/-RAM format utility by <appro fy chalmers se>, version 4.10.
* 4.7GB DVD+RW media detected.
* formatting /:-[ CLOSE SESSION failed with SK=5h/ASC=30h/ACQ=06h]: Wrong medium type


growisofs also gives me a "Wrong medium type". All this was done with an "Imation DVD+RW|4x".

I tried googleing the problem but didn't find anything that would help me with this problem.

Any ideas?
