The command to burn dvd on-the-fly


i've tried to use cdrecord (in terminal), attempted to burn a dvd, on-the-fly
it failed and resulted a message: cannot write TAO

perhaps, cdrecord can write cd only
then, what's the command to write a dvd on-the-fly?

i understand that k3b's good but i wanna learn the command

Here are a couple of examples to get you started ...
Code:
Burn a data DVD:
growisofs -Z /dev/dvd -R -J /home/data

To append more data to same DVD:
growisofs -M /dev/dvd -R -J /home/more/data

Burn a pre-mastered ISO-image to a DVD:
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=image.iso

Burn a video DVD:
growisofs -Z /dev/dvd -dvd-video my_dvd

It can also be done with dvdrecord/mkisofs:
mkisofs -f -r -udf -o /home/myfiles.iso .
dvdrecord -v dev=/dev/dvdrw driveropts=burnproof -dao -data myfiles.iso

I've successfully burnt DVDs with the command:

growisofs -Z /dev/dvd -R -J /home/data

The finished disks can be used in linux but failed to be mounted in Windows. Why?
