Hi Duncan,

I was using dvdrecord.  I checked out the website that Fredd suggested, 
and although I did not have my dvd-drive in fstab (so it wasn't 
auto-mounting).... I did try using growisofs instead, and it works 
well.    I can write and not have the drive lock-up :) :)

That just saved me a big headache - thank you Fredd and Duncan for your 
replies :)
