This expands on an earlier posting now that I have a little more
experience. I've burned 5 Memorex DVD+RL's now on Solaris 10/Sparc using
a Plextor PX-740A.
First of all I'm surprised it actually works most of the time. Neither
Joerg's cdrecord-ProDVD or Sun's cdrw will run when they see the DL media.
Does cdrecord report the right media?
If not, your drive does not like the medium.
growisofs does like the media and I have had a few more successes, now 5
for 7. Maybe I just had 2 defective disks.
Here is the output from cdrecord and then dvd+rw-mediainfo on a blank piece:
