Re: dvd burning problem, dvd+rw-tools, LG GSA-4120B

This particular kernel from gentoo has the following patch applied, so the
whole fuss about 2.6.8-scsi-whatever-dvdwriting-"bug"(*) should not be a

This problem should have manifested itself prior such write failure, so that yes, it's most likely something else.

# growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/hdc=/tmp/tj1-60.iso
Executing 'builtin_dd if=/tmp/tj1-60.iso of=/dev/hdc obs=32k seek=0'

And after I close the tray:

In DVD+R case the last line would mean that it's OK to write. What happens if you try to re-run growisofs? Does it fail in the very same or some other way?

What could be the problem? Any ideas?

Try another media brand. Also try to lower the recording speed. Being rather bizarre, the problem smells poor firmware media support for particular brand or media product. A.
