Is there a specific reason you are using a Windows program through Wine to do this? dvdshink and dvd9to5 are both good examples. Sorry, can't hlep with the original question but I tired with an alternate solution

only thing i can give you is a speculation.....

i think windows uses the ATAPI scsi driver thing for the DVD-rw drive that linux doesn't support.....

LOT easier to use native programs though......

Do you have a logical drive mapped to your dvd recorder drive? I don;t know if that'll help but it's a place to start. In your ~/.wine/dosdevices see if there's a link that looks something like d: -> /mnt/dvdrw (that's what mine looks like).

As the others suggest, try a native linux program instead. vobcopy is a decent commandline utility that'll copy the contents of a dvd disc as long as the required libs are installed.
