First a note on your mkisofs command: you should not use the option
"-no-cache-inodes" unless you have a _really_ good reason and I am really sure
that you don't have a reason ;-) mkisofs works best if you omit this option!

Regarding your write problems. From your mail, it is obvious that you did not
try cdrecord but you used only the original mkisofs together with growisofs
and you tried to use growisofs in a mode that it's author does not like.

I cannot recommend wodim, it is based on a 3 year old version of cdrecord and
the original DVD support from cdrecord code has been replaced by half baken
play code by someone else. There is even no support for it since May 6th 2007.

I would recommend you to try cdrecord. The k3b people told me that k3b prefers
cdrecord if found.

Make sure that cdrecord is installed suid root.
If your have more than one drive, first call cdrecord -scanbus for the right
dev= parameter. If you only have one drive, just omit dev= from your command

In order to get help, you need to send some information:

1) the cdrecord -atip output to indicate the media manufacturer.
Media from cheap manufacturers may cause problems.

2) the cdrecord -minfo output to indicate the state of the medium before
the write process started

3) the cdrecord -dao -v xxx.iso output to see what happens
