No longer able to burn dvd+r's


Hi all--
I am using Slackware 9.1. Up until two months ago, I was able to burn dvd+r's using the command line as well as TKDvd. I started having problems when I tried making dvd's, but making coasters became real easy. So I bought another burner and everything was cool until last month. Now I can't burn dvd+r's but I still can burn dvd+rw. Here is what happens when I try burning a dvd.iso using 'growisofs'

growisofs -Z /dev/dvd=dvd.iso
Executing 'builtin_dd if=dvd.iso of=/dev/dvd obs=32k seek=0'
/dev/dvd: "Current Write Speed" is 8.0x1385KBps.

Can someone shed some light on this strange problem, or suggest a site to check out? Thanks for the info....

Were there any packages that you updated or installed at about the same time that your DVD burning stopped working?

Hey...none that I can think of. What's strange is I have slack 10.1 on another drive and I have the same problem.

What about the medium you're using? Is it the same as what you used before "until two months ago"?

That command isn't the same as what I use, but that might not matter. I'm using:
Code:
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/hd*=image.iso
You might want to issue and read "man growisofs" for more info on -dvd-compat

There's more info here > http://fy.chalmers.se/~appro/linux/DVD+RW/

hello---
Well, I guess by medium you mean brand? I was using Memorax and now am using Fuji.... I don't think that is the problem because I can burn with Nero in winxp.... but now I don't have sound when I play dvds in windoze...(long story short...since I can no longer burn with linux, I would use xp but now gotta a sound issue! When I tried burning with nero, it copys and plays back fine...that is if you like silent flix)
)
The command you mentioned I have used, but they both seemed to have worked...

thanks for the comments
