Well, I am not sure about that. Since I can't read anything from the
DVD there is no way I can tell. It does appear that growisofs went
through the motions of doing its job and took a while. I also tried
with and without joliet but to no avail. Thomas suggested (off-list)
that I try other media. I'll do that and check if it helps any.

OK, thanks for the tip. If new media does not work, I'll experiment
Thanks again. I'll let the list know if other media works.
