Re: growisofs - Invalid argument

Are you using overwriteable media ?
(DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, formatted DVD-RW)
If not, then the error might be caused by using
on appendable media option -Z rather than -M.

"Invalid argument" refers to the communication of growisofs
and drive. The MMC error list says:
5 21 02 INVALID ADDRESS FOR WRITE
The write address is given by "WRITE@LBA=0h".
It should work if the media is blank or overwriteable.
(Yours is not blank but "carries isofs".)
It would not work if the media is appendable (i.e.
written but not closed and thus still writeable).
To find out about the media state, you may do
(The tray with the media has to be loaded already.)
Have a nice day :)
