It is not clear whether this is due to poor
writing quality or due to poor reading.

If you just exchanged original mkisofs for
genisoimage, then this had nothing to do with the
problem. Success now would indicate that your
drive problem is erratic or that it is about
individual DVD-R media.

The main difference between cdrecord and your
usage of growisofs is in the write modes
Disk-at-Once versus Incremental Streaming.
You will get Disk-at-Once from growisofs by

Disk-at-Once DVD-R media are not appendable.
I.e. you cannot add further files by
  growisofs -M ...

Have a nice day :)
