I burned an ISO to DVD+RW with growisofs then checked its status with dvd+rw-mediainfo. It seems to have burned ok. Then I eject and re-insert the DVD and do another dvd+rw-mediainfo. Now the media is blank.
The obvious problem would have been lack of dvd-compat, but you did use the option. My second though is that you may have gotten a fast format on your media, and your player, for whatever reason, may require a full format. Since it's RW it might be interesting to do a full format on that same media, then burn it in the same way, and see if that make a difference.
I have not had a problem with any of my players, in fact I had several commercial DVDs which wouldn't play in one until I burned a copy, but DVD players are not yet a completely deterministic technology.
