Cannot record material onto DVD's.


I am using up to date Mint 19.1. The drive is an ASUSTek DRW-24D5MT.
I tried recording music onto a DVD+r disc using both Brasero and K3b for an imminent funeral. No luck.
I swapped drives without any success.
I then interrogated the drive via 'inxi-Fxzd' in the console. It showed that it only rw DVD- types. I now own a bundle of DVD-R discs. I still cannot record anything onto the disk. What am I missing?
I have been using linux for 4 years, read the Linux magazine and I still feel like a dunce!

According to this site; https://www.quietpc.com/asus-drw-24d5mt your drive supports write modes:

DVD+R & DVD+R (DL) Sequential Write, DVD-R & DVD-R(DL) DAO, DVD+RW Random Write, DVD-RW DAO/Restricted Overwrite/Incremental Recording,
DVD-RAM Random Write, CD-R/RW DAO/TAO/SAO/Packet Write


Check your logs (/var/log/syslog or /var/log/messages, depending on distro) for errors. Maybe there is a permissions or other problems. What do you see when you try to write?

Thanking you.
Re rokytnji. I did a ‘ apt-cache policy dvd+rw-tools ‘ and got an installed response as per your example.
Re smallpond.
I just redid a try with Brasero but it stopped early. I then ran k3b and it could not add the files to the ‘Current Projects' screen. Attached is the script from /var/log/syslog

Try starting your burning program from the command line and burning a disk.

You may see some helpful error messages appear in the terminal.

Also, and this is a shot in the dark, check whether your user is in the wheel group.

Adding your user to the cdrom group ( no need for wheel ) should give you permission for writing.

sudo usermod -aG cdrom username

Logout and then login for the group to become active.

The groups command will display all groups your user is in.

With k3b there is a possibility of permission problems. You don't say what error messages your get. At one time, at least, there was a problem that you had to be root to run it. I ran into that problem and, as I remember, fixed it by changing permissions on /usr/bin/wodim & cdrdao to allow world execution.
