[CentOS] Problems with writing Dual Layer DVD

I am running Centos 4 (fully updated on this box).
I removed the old DVD writer (/dev/hdc) and installed a new LG GH20
"Internal Super Multi DVD Rewriter" with a SATA interface - this shows
up as /dev/scd0.
When I insert a pre-recorded DVD autorun mounts it and displays the
contents without any hassles. It appears to me that the required kernel
modules are loaded - as copied below from lsmod output.
sata_nv 18629 0
libata 111261 1 sata_nv
sd_mod 17217 0
scsi_mod 125261 3 sr_mod,libata,sd_mod
I am using Verbatim DVD-RDL blanks.
When I try to write a pre-recorded iso to the DVD I get the following
[user at test]$ growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvdwriter=<pre-recorded>.iso
:-( /dev/dvdwriter: media is not recognized as recordable DVD: 10015
I have tried to do this as root with the same result. /dev/dvdwriter is
a link to /dev/scd0 and has full read/write/execute permissions.
Output of growisofs -version:
* growisofs by <appro at fy.chalmers.se>, version 5.21,
front-ending to mkisofs: mkisofs 2.01 (i686-pc-linux-gnu)
Any suggestions will be welcome - if any further information is required
I will do my best to supply it.
I have Googled with the error message but only get reports of this
problem and no solutions.
