Is there a way to burn a DVD on a Debian/stable system. Here is what brasero is telling me when trying to burn a iso file:

enter image description here

For information:

I did read:

So if I now try from the command line:

The cdrskin run failed because you demanded -dummy with a medium for which the drive cannot do a simulated burn run. This works only with CD-R[W] and DVD-R[W].

I tried growisofs and it worked just fine, would be nice to know what was the whole issue here.

% growisofs  -dvd-compat -Z /dev/sr0=7601.17514.101119-1850_x64fre_server_eval_en-us-GRMSXEVAL_EN_DVD.iso
