dvdrecord -v /path/to/my/dvd.iso
Here is what i get from output from that command:
dvdrecord: No CD/DVD-Recorder device specified.
dvdrecord: Usage: dvdrecord [options] track1...trackn
-version print version information and exit
dev=target SCSI target to use as CD/DVD-Recorder
timeout=# set the default SCSI command timeout to #.
debug=#,-d Set to # or increment misc debug level
kdebug=#,kd=# do Kernel debugging
-verbose,-v increment general verbose level by one
-Verbose,-V increment SCSI command transport verbose level by one
-silent,-s do not print status of failed SCSI commands
driver=name user supplied driver name, use with extreme care
driveropts=opt a comma separated list of driver specific options
-checkdrive check if a driver for the drive is present
-prcap print drive capabilities for MMC compliant drives
-inq do an inquiry for the drive and exit
-scanbus scan the SCSI bus and exit
-reset reset the SCSI bus with the cdrecorder (if possible)
-overburn allow to write more than the official size of a medium
-ignsize ignore the known size of a medium (may cause problems)
-useinfo use *.inf files to overwrite audio options.
speed=# set speed of drive
blank=type blank a CD-RW disc (see blank=help)
fs=# Set fifo size to # (0 to disable, default is 4 MB)
-load load the disk and exit (works only with tray loader)
-eject eject the disk after doing the work
-dummy do everything with laser turned off
-msinfo retrieve multi-session info for mkisofs >= 1.10
-toc retrieve and print TOC/PMA data
-atip retrieve and print ATIP data
-multi generate a TOC that allows multi session
In this case default track type is CD-ROM XA2
-fix fixate a corrupt or unfixated disk (generate a TOC)
-nofix do not fixate disk after writing tracks
-waiti wait until input is available before opening SCSI
-force force to continue on some errors to allow blanking bad disks
-dao Write disk in DAO mode. This option will be replaced in the future.
-raw Write disk in RAW mode. This option will be replaced in the future.
-raw96r Write disk in RAW/RAW96R mode. This option will be replaced in the future.
-raw96p Write disk in RAW/RAW96P mode. This option will be replaced in the future.
-raw16 Write disk in RAW/RAW16 mode. This option will be replaced in the future.
tsize=# Length of valid data in next track

mcn=text Set the media catalog number for this CD to 'text'
isrc=text Set the ISRC number for the next track to 'text'
index=list Set the index list for the next track to 'list'

-isosize Use iso9660 file system size for next data track
-preemp Audio tracks are mastered with 50/15 �s preemphasis
-nopreemp Audio tracks are mastered with no preemphasis (default)
-copy Audio tracks have unlimited copy permission
-nocopy Audio tracks may only be copied once for personal use (default)
-scms Audio tracks willl not not have any copy permission at all
-pad Pad data tracks with 15 zeroed sectors
Pad audio tracks to a multiple of 2352 bytes
-nopad Do not pad data tracks (default)
-shorttrack Subsequent tracks may be non Red Book < 4 seconds if in DAO mode
-noshorttrack Subsequent tracks must be >= 4 seconds
-swab Audio data source is byte-swapped (little-endian/Intel)
-gui Make output more GUI- (and less human-) readable
-delay x Set delay before writing to x seconds (default: 9)
The type of the first track is used for the toc type.
Currently only form 1 tracks are supported.
I don't think it likes the -v
