I did this choice because I was using growisofs on my older computer,
but it didn't allow to write (fail) on my new with my DVD-RW recorder,
so I tried cdrecord, which also failed and then tried wodim which worked
directly :-)

As one could read in your signature, using wodim :

BUT I have now tried version 7.0 of dvd+rw-tools and yes it works !!!

I should have tried again growisofs, now I remember having done some
testings on my older computer with the author of dvd+rw-tools because
the disks weren't closed on the Sony 500A, and he wrote a small part of
code to close disk... I shall look at it, maybe that code would allow me
to close my discs, as cdrecord fails at doing so either.

Thank and happy new year :-)
