I was talking about my DVD+R/DL discs.

Here's the relevant bits from my cdrecord manpage on my current version
(Cdrecord-ProDVD-ProBD-Clone 2.01.01a38) - I suppose I should have
mentioned the version to begin with:

To me, that implies that layerbreak=value would work for a DVD+R/DL, and
plain "layerbreak" would only work for DVD-R/DL. I had just been asking
if that was actually the case, or just sort of a typo.

I thought that I had. DVD+R/DL discs burned without "layerbreak=value"
on my box result in discs which are unreadable past the layer break (at
least, I assume that's where it fails, since it's at just about half the
size of the disc). Once I threw in a manual layerbreak, the discs that
I burnt worked properly. I didn't mention this in the original email,
but I haven't yet run any tests on a different batch of discs, to see if
it was just the media requiring that flag for me.
