I got no such trouble.
The differences in my and your usage of growisofs seem to be :
- I use option -use-the-force-luke
- I run mkisofs and growisofs separately in a pipe :
mkisofs ... | \
growisofs -use-the-force-luke -dvd-compat \
About cron : the shell environments used by cron often lack
important variables. If you find no other reason for growisofs'
refusal, maybe you put it into a script and prepend the full
output of command env executed in a dialog shell.
Have a nice day :)
