Smile Trouble burning to dvdrw part 2


i hope it is ok to post here again but i thought if i replied to my own post no one would see it from the part one post?

Anyways i am beginning to hate solaris and open solaris more and more only, because i am having such bad luck writing to a dvd+rw disk.

Not that its a bad OS not at.not by a long shot.
But i thought it is the most adavanced Operating system on the planet (as they say it is)

If it is then why does BSD have everything elese
Slowaris does not have?

Even their Mplayer has no skins and looks ugly
and no repeat loop functions either.

i was asked if my drive was supported by Solaris.
well it does Write to DVD i know for sure,
but does that mean Solaris supports it?

i looked at the hardware compat list and my Model#
was not there but a different model was by the same manufacturer Lite-ON

i am using Lite-ON

i have installed dvd+rw tools package.
Nothing seems to work as i only see i can
record to DVD with cdrecord

i am about to call it quits with Solaris and get back with BSD as my Desktop some time soon,unless someone with some knowledge here can help me please?

Maybe my DvdRW Lite-ON Drive is hated by Solaris?
and only writes to Dvd and not DVD+RW.

i already ran out and bought a Ethernet card that is useable for
Slowaris and do not think i am about to run out and buy a Drive for it now if this does not work lol

i wont stop using BSD as my Server though thats for sure.

Any ideas please i really need some help with this one
a step by step maybe like a toddler walkthrough
The journey is better then the destination
