The maintainers of wodim will hopefully forgive me iif i state that it
is mainly suitable for CD but not for DVD recording.
Try Andy Polyakov's growisofs or my programs cdrskin resp. xorriso.
cdrskin has a command line interface that is compatible to wodim.
If the problem persists, then i would be willing to help diagnosing
In this case it would be interesting to know what drive and exact
media type you are using. Assuming it is accessible via /dev/sr0,
cdrskin dev=/dev/sr0 -msinfo
and report the output.
If you have growisofs installed, run
with the drive tray already loaded. (Else the report will be very short.)
Further tell by what kind of bus it is connected to the computer.
IDE/ATAPI, USB, SATA ... ?
In some cases, bottlenecks in the opering system can hamper full
speed on 16x DVD media. But 4x speed is so low, that i would blame
it on the burn program - at least on a 2x64bit AMD system.
Have a nice day :)
