    You can test if it's the kernel/growisofs clashing by hacking the
    drivers/block/scsi_ioctl.c code

    It's around line 193 in 2.6.9, and line 196 in 2.6.10
    not sure about 2.6.11

    find the code:

    /* Write-safe commands just require a writable open.. */
    if (type & CMD_WRITE_SAFE) {
    if (file->f_mode & FMODE_WRITE)
    return 0;
    }

    edit it to something like:

    /* Write-safe commands just require a writable open.. */
    if (type & CMD_WRITE_SAFE) {
    printk ("Write safe command in ");
    if (file->f_mode & FMODE_WRITE)
    printk ("write mode.\n");
    else
    printk ("read mode.\n");
    return 0;
    }

    Compile the kernel with that and that may make it work and burn dvd and let
    you know if it's growisofs sending incorrect commands. You'll get messages in
    dmesg like

    Write safe command in read mode.

    which means growisofs is still not right. Maybe later version fixed this?
