Wodim error, file type issue


I'm currently trying to burn an iso created from an avi file, I've got the iso, I've got the dvd, I've even got the experience with wodim.

Brilliant, but heres the problem; wodim is failing, it is giving me a file type error which is baffling me. I used devede (under Ubuntu) on the avi file to generate the iso. (DeVeDe does all the work, or should- conversion to mpg, build the dvd data, build into iso.)

Output from wodim:

Code:
jc@jcmain:~$ sudo wodim -sao speed=2 redundant/project_file.iso 
[sudo] password for jc:

Simple problem, eh? Doesn't like the iso?

Code:
jc@jcmain:~$ file redundant/project_file.iso 
redundant/project_file.iso: UDF filesystem data (version 1.5) 'DVD-VIDEO                      '
I don't know anything about DVD file data (never needed to know) so I don't know if thats the right filetype, though I'd assume it is

I'm working with three theories here, either DeVeDe is writing bad data, wodim wont write the iso, or there is an issue with the DVD drive.

The latter could be it, trying to do this with a byte transfer of the iso to the device does the following:

Code:
jc@jcmain:~$ sudo dd if=redundant/project_file.iso of=/dev/sr0
dd: opening `/dev/sr0': Read-only file system
and cheating:
Code:
jc@jcmain:~$ sudo chmod 777 /dev/sr0
jc@jcmain:~$ sudo dd if=redundant/project_file.iso of=/dev/sr0
dd: opening `/dev/sr0': Read-only file system
Just to save any embarrassment for me later, yes I've double checked and it is rewriteable, both the disk and the drive. Everything is supported.

The file type seems to be the problem.

Simulate writing in other ways
