I read your message of yesterday, tried your commands,
and they worked fine for me. Shrug.

about weirdly behaving DVD i would point to the
combination of DVD writer and DVD media.
For example i got a report about DVD+R media which
did mount and looked good - but it was impossible
to read them sequentially like: cat </dev/dvd
The phenomenon persisted until the writer devices
(two Benq) were found to have heat problems and were
replaced (by NEC).
End of spook.
So - if you didn't try yet - you could replace :
- your writer program by cdrecord-ProDVD
- your kernel by one that is more conservative
- your media by another brand or technology
i.e. DVD-RW, DVD+-R (although i found DVD+RW
to be the most reliable type)
- your writer device by another one from another
I live happily with a 2.4 kernel, ide-scsi, and a
1 year old LG burner. May my hardware stay healthy
so i do not need to upgrade.

Have a nice day :)
