I tried a different DVD and got pretty much the same thing:

Code:
me@tpt60:~$ growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=/home/me/media/movies/The\ Secret.iso 
Executing 'builtin_dd if=/home/me/media/movies/The Secret.iso of=/dev/dvd obs=32k seek=0'

POWER CALIBRATION AREA ERROR
If you google the error, the result should be pretty clear. Most Power Calibration errors are a result of media/burner compatibility issues. Either cheap/bad media, or failing laser on the burner.

Instead of growisofs try plain old cdrecord.

cdrecord dev=/dev/sg3 fs=32m speed=16 -v -eject /path/file.iso

Be sure to change dev, speed, and path to suite your needs.

Well the cdrecord somehow worked ... This doesn't make any sense:

Couple of issues -

Total size: 214 MB
That's smaller than even a CD. Was there a reason to burn this to DVD? At that size you could have authored a (S)VCD - assuming it was a movie coming from the directory layout

DVD-RAM UJ-822S
Average write speed 1.7x.
Min drive buffer fill was 38%


And you passed speed=16
If I'm not mistaken, that drive is in a laptop, pretty old, and has a max write speed of 2.4x to DVD+R media. Judging by the buffer fill, and overall average speed, I hope you were doing other things at the time this was burning. Burning at 2.4x should take little to no effort at all.

About growisofs, I honestly don't know Never had a reason to use it personally.

A little off-topic, but blank DVDs are actually cheaper than blank CDs at most places (at least where I am). Silly yes (DVDs hold WAY more information than CDs), but I have been known to 'waste a DVD' like this (I once burned GParted to a DVD -- even though it is only about 90 MB). If it's cheaper, I'm certainly not going to waste money on a CD.

Beware of the cheap surface on those DVDs, I mean I have old burned CDs that work still fine, but I see more and more reading errors from old burned DVDs

Exactly why I don't buy cheap DVDs. Taiyo Yuden DVDs and CDs. I still have DVDs from 2001 that pass crc checks today (TDK/Pioneer). I also have some cheap DVDs that fail CRC checks 2 seconds after they were burnt Every now and then I do pick up a 50 pack of CDs for $4.99 from the local Microcenter.

Pioneer hasn't made media for a while, and today's TDK's are sometimes made by the same Taiwan company that makes Verbatim, Memorex, HP, and what ever else flavor of the month there is.

If I need to just test a quick movie or menu layout, that's what I use DVD-RW's and DVD-RAM for.
