Well I burn DVDs like this:
growisofs -Z /dev/hda -J -R /dirwithfiles

-J and -R and /dirwithfiles are of course mkisofs options.

Appending files is done by changing -Z to -M and providing a dir with
the new files to add.

Burning an image is done with: growisofs -Z /dev/hda=image.iso

k3b is supposed to support growisofs although I find the command line
tools a lot easier to use (and I burn as root since some kernels require
that, and I don't run X as root, so k3b is not an option really even if
I liked it.)

I do NOT use ide-scsi.

Using media your drive (and firmware) doesn't likem causes strange
errors.  If you have a problem, try another brand of media just in case.
Check if there is firmware updates for your drive.
