While the desktop was able to burn dvd's after a bit the laptop, which has a 64 bit os cannot.
I tried with the dvd+rw-tools from hardy, and I also tried forcing earlier versions [edgy] without luck.

Using the hardy version on dvd+rw tools I get:

karim at ubuntult01:~$ dvd+rw-format -force /dev/cdrom1

* BD/DVD±RW/-RAM format utility by <appro at fy.chalmers.se>, version 7.0.

* 4.7GB DVD-RW media in Restricted Overwrite mode detected.

* formatting 0.0-:-[ PERFORM OPC failed with SK=3h/ASC=73h/ACQ=03h]:
