Ok so I have upgraded the firmware on my dvd burner to eliminate that as
a source of the problem and im still having the same issue.

I did some further research and found discussion of the same problem on
the package's mailing list:

http://lists.debian.org/cdwrite/2009/01/msg00026.html [Specific Response]

There was a developer there that suggested a test for the problem. I
tried downloading the source but I was unable to apply all the necessary
patches to the package from the repos in order to test his suggestion.

One thing I noticed, but am not sure if its the problem, is the way the
burning looked on the DVD+DL  when it failed. Im not sure if its
supposed to burn continuously from the center out in ring, but the
failed dvd had huge gaps in writing where you can visible see it skipped
a lot of space, went out further and started writing and repeated. So if
its not supposed to leave gaps between rings then that means its most
likely hitting the outer edge before its supposed to while writing, but
im no expert on this, just making an educated guess.

In my search for a non growisofs burning application I installed the
latest Nero 3 Linux demo and although it was a bit slow it did manage to
burn the DVD+DL fine so it doesnt appear to be an issue with my drive
and media incompatibility.

Can someone please mark this as a bug of dvd+rw-tools.
