Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: dvd+rw-tools

I recently changed my DVD burner (for a LG GH22NS40). Since then, I
haven't been able to burn any DVD+R with growisofs. I can still burn
DVD+R with Wodim without any problem.

Each time I try to burn a DVD+R (I haven't tried DVD-R) with k3b and
growisofs 7.0.1, the burning session ends by:

 4117790720/4172283904 (98.7%) @4.0x, remaining 0:10 RBU 100.0% UBU 100.0%
 4136304640/4172283904 (99.1%) @4.0x, remaining 0:06 RBU 100.0% UBU 100.0%

/dev/scd0: flushing cache
:-[ SYNCHRONOUS FLUSH CACHE failed with SK=3h/ASC=A0h/ACQ=80h]: Input/output error

I've tried various possible fixes (using first dvd+rw-booktype; using
the -poor-man growisofs option; using different DVD+R brands), with
always the same result.

I've burned over ten DVDs, with the same result each time.
