DVD+R and growisofs



Hi All,

We've got a RedHat Linux 8.0 computer with a Philips DVD+RW-D01
drive.  This is the DVD+RW drive that Dell ships out with 
their workstations.

This drive reads and writes CD+R and DVD+RW just fine.  However,
I am having problems getting it to write to a DVD+R disk.
I pop a fresh DVD+R disk into the drive, then type this:
        > growisofs -Z /dev/scd0 -R -J /var/spool/anacron
        Executing 'mkisofs -R -J /var/spool/anacron | dd of=/dev/scd0 obs=32k se
ek=0'
        :-[ SENSE KEY=5h/ASC=30h/ASCQ=10h ]
        :-( write failed: Invalid argument

It also fails if I try to write a pre-made iso file to the drive.
>From what I've read, the "dvd+rw-format" isn't necessary on
a DVD+R disk, and in fact will make the DVD+R unreadable for
any future "growisofs" writes.

We are running:
	cdrtools-cdrecord-1.11a23-1
	cdrtools-cdda2wav-1.11a23-1
	cdrtools-mkisofs-1.11a23-1
	xcdroast-0.98alpha10-1
	dvd+rw-tools-4.1.3.0.3

Does anyone know how to write to a DVD+R disk in Linux 8.0?

Thanks,

Cheryl
