The machine has FC3 with kernel 2.6.10-1.741_FC3
shows the drive as:
1,0,0 100) 'SONY ' 'DVD RW DRU-720A ' 'JY02' Removable CD-ROM
As root, I can record data a DVD with a command like:
cdrecord -sao speed=16 dev=ATA:1,0,0 mydata.iso
There is a gui application that pops up when I put in a DVD blank, and I have to close it before doing my command line recording.
