I don't care about the putput from dvd+rw-mediainfo

Pleae do not continue to repeat that this is a linux vs. no-linus problem

Are you unwilling to read the documentation?

Why do you use an unsupported dev= parameter?

The disk is OK now and should be readable on every non-defective 
drive that supports to read DVD+R media.

A buggy program like wodim that does not print error messages
when it creates defective media is a real problem. Why didn't you listen
to the warnings I publish since more than a year? Wodim is software published 
by people that don't care about their users. The only intention these people
had was to harm the free software project cdrtools.

Now your problem that was caused by defective "DVD support" in wodim 
has been fixed by cdrecord!

The previously unreadable track #1 is now correctly closed.

What is your problem?

Note that you did not yet report any real problem. My answers are all
bases on the known bugs in wodim and on your claim that the medium
is not readable.
