I don't believe cdrecord can burn DVD's without an additional program. You'll need to get Jorg Schilling's extensions called cdrecord-ProDVD.
You can get the binary (assuming i686) from:
but you'll need a licence key (free for personal use) which can be retreived from the readme file:
Instructions on how to use the key are in the file. I think you'll also need to rename the binary and put it somewhere in your path. I think instructions for that are also provided (the name should be something like cdrecord.prodvd I think)

[Edit: Goodness! How many times did I use 'I think'? That's hideous!]
