Problems with DVD upgrade

I am upgrading my PC from a CDRW to a Pioneer dual layer compatible DVD/CD
writer model No. DVR-710 (AKA DVR-111DBK),  I am running Debian Sarge
stable.  The drive is capable of recording to cdroms however it bombs trying
to record to DVD-R blanks.  When I try to record to a DVD I receive the
following in syslog
          " kernel: cdrom: This disc doesn't have any tracks I recognize!"
The DVD seems to work well with WinXP so I know that it is a config problem

The file /etc/fstab lists the default value for the original CDRW (now the
upgrade Pioneer DVD) as
/dev/hdb        /media/cdrom0   iso9660 ro,user,noauto  0       0

When I try to google for help on the subject, I don't receive anything that
seems to pin point the problem.  The info page for cdrecord doesn't shed any
light on the problem.

I would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks in advance.
