    Have you tried
    Code:
    dvd+rw-format -force /dev/dvd
    (maybe you need to do it as root and if /dev/dvd is not right for your
    device replace it by what it is e.g. /dev/sr0)

    Looks like that the GUI app treat the first pass as job finished ?

    Not sure about that because it is absolutely unclear to me what the
    --gui option really does at all, it can also be that maybe the root
    rights do the trick.
    When a gui program fails I most often test the command it runs (as far
    as it is possible if it runs a command and one can find out which)
    without gui and without special options from the command line to see if
    it makes a difference.
    Obviously in that case there is a difference.
