Mounting CD/DVD in rw mode

How to mount a rewritable dvd+rw (or cdrom) in rw mode?

I tried (with kernel 2.6.4)

Harware: external USB2 DVD-RW (Liton) / internal ATAPI CD-RW (Matashita)

Any hints ?
Or any idea how to use dvd+rw without having to write the whole bunch at once?

Only DVD-RAM can do this, DVD+/-R/RW must be burned at one time, although I believe +R can do multisession recording, i.e. record half now, half later. I remember back in the day Easy Cd Creator used to do some type of rw thing for cd's, but I dont remember the name of it or any Linux programs that can do the same thing.
