Why is the device /dev/sr0, are you sure you don't mean /dev/sda or /dev/hda.

-Hope this helps.

install cdrecord-prodvd
cdrecord -scanbus
xcdroast should do it or any program based on cdrecord.

there are other programs to do it too.

check that your burning device is really what you think it might be

Make sure you have a '/dev/dvd' device and run this command for .iso files:

growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=<thenameofyouriso.iso>
or this one for a folder full of files:

growisofs -Z /dev/dvd -R -J /some/files
These work on my system.
