That may (or may not) be true, but I was under the impression that CD writing 
protocols were pretty standard. Is that not the case?

Just so you know, I'm a bit hesitant to go and buy another set of discs since 
I know the ones I have do work, just not in Debian. I'll probably use these 
up by creating an image then burning it in Windows until I run out of discs 
before I get a new set to try. That's the fault of my silly initial 
assumption that they would've standardised this shit by now.

growisofs doesn't seem to give a crap what I tell it. speed=1 and it reports 
"/dev/hdc: "Current Write Speed" is 6.1x1385KBps." anyway.

I have no idea what it would be like on a dual layer disc, I only have access 
to single layer discs.
