Yeah. I have a Sony DW-U10A. Got it working with cdrecord-prodvd 2.01a12

Worked with +R and +RW media, but had errors after burning 4 MB of data on 
the -R media I tried. Though looking at some fourms, this may be a firmware 
issue, as it aparently has prombelms with -R/-RW media on windows as well...

The other issue is that cdrecord-prodvd is non-free. The source is not 
available, and you need a key to unlock it. The key is free for  
"private/research/educational_non-commercial_use" but commercial users must 
pay some amount.
