I can burn a DVD+R DL in Brasero, but I can't mount it? "No medium found..."

Hello --

I'm hoping there's an obvious solution to this one, but I've searched around for quite a while and come up empty.

I burned a DVD+R DL (double-layer) disc in Brasero. However, when I try to mount the disc (either automount through Nautilus, or through the command-line), I get a "No medium found on /dev/sr0" message. What's puzzling is that the burn did work, since I can put the drive in a Windows machine, and browse its contents without a problem. Also, I am able to mount CDs and DVD-Rs with no problem.

One thing that might be important; Brasero asked me if I wanted to make the disc an "ISO Level 3" disc, so that I could put large files on it, and I said "yes." Would this cause a problem?

I'm running OpenSUSE 11.1.
My drive is listed as "ata2.00: ATAPI: Optiarc DVD+/-RW AD-5540A, 102C, max UDMA/33."

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks -- Bill.
