First, as I'm sure your checked, your seek address is a multiple of 2k.
So it's on a sector boundary.
Last step fails:

Without knowing the parameters to lseek64 here, I would guess this is
a defective previous session os a linux kernel bug.
Mmm. That's why I added the DEBUG output
lseek(f, 2607382528, SEEK_SET)
How can I test the previous session? It has been written successfully
Are you sure that your system doesn't try to mount or check a DVD when
you put it in the drive? Some of this is in the window manager and some
in udev, although once I told the WM not to ever look at an optical
media I stopped having warnings. udev hasn't caused problems that way,
Fedora  in use here.
Pretty sure. No window manager. vmware runs guest ms-windows but the dvd drive
is NOT connected to them. No automounter.
pktcdvd was installed but its device was not used. Now I have removed it.
