cdrecord to write an ISO
 
whats the exact cmd to write an .iso using cdrecord?

Code:

cdrecord dev=0,4,0 <NAME_OF_IMAGE>.iso
You'll have to replace the device number (the 0,4,0) with the appropriate integers for your burner.

how do i find them?

Did your version of cdrecord come with man pages?

For ATA devices
Code:

cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus
For SCSI devices
Code:

cdrecord -scanbus

Use growisofs to write dvd's.

Depends on your distro. Here's what I use on RH derivatives to burn dvds

cdrecord dev=/dev/dvdwriter driveropts=burnfree -dao filename.iso

You'll need to change the device of course

hey cdrecord says something about /dev/pg0 not being found and soemthing about a SCSI driver (not being initialised or something like that) :(

You're supposed to use dev=0,4,0 to specify the device. Using /dev/<whatever> is unsupported although sometimes it works. How about the actual error message instead of your rendition of the error message?
