Thumbs down Error writing DVD ISO

Dear All,

I have Fedora 10, linux-2.6.25-14.fc9.x86_64.

I am trying to burn a Debian installation ISO file to a DVD+R 16x.

Here's what I know:

The ISO file is debian-40r6-i386-amd64-powerpc-source-DVD-1.iso
The DVD drive is /dev/sr0.

As root...

# cdrecord -scanbus

	1,1,0	101) *

	1,3,0	103) *
	1,4,0	104) *
	1,5,0	105) *
	1,6,0	106) *
	1,7,0	107) *
# dvdrecord -dev=1,0,0 debian-40r6-i386-amd64-powerpc-source-DVD-1.iso
dvdrecord: No write mode specified.
dvdrecord: Asuming -tao mode.
dvdrecord: Future versions of wodim may have different drive dependent defaults.
WARNING: the deprecated pseudo SCSI syntax found as device specification.
Support for that may cease in the future versions of wodim. For now,
the device will be mapped to a block device file where possible.
Run "wodim --devices" for details.

What's going wrong?

The problem is in your post. The lines:

Device seems to be: Generic mmc2 DVD-R/DVD-RW.
Using generic SCSI-3/mmc DVD-R(W) driver (mmc_mdvd).

tells us the driver being selected is for DVD-RW media only, not DVD+RW. I see the drive is a DVD+- unit, so
try adding driver=mmc_dvdplusr to your dvdrecord command.
The man page for dvdrecord has more info about using DVD+R(W) media.
