k3b (and probably xcdroast) still make use of the underlying tool (cdrecord
or dvd+rw-tools). I have had best results with the latter:

Description: DVD+-RW/R tools
 dvd+rw-tools makes it possible to burn DVD images created by dvdauthor or
 mkisofs to DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD-R, and DVD-RW disks, replacing cdrecord-proDVD
 in many cases.
 The package contains:
   * growisofs to burn DVD images or create a data DVD on the fly
   * dvd+rw-format to format a DVD+RW
   * dvd+rw-mediainfo to give details about DVD disks
 and some programs to control the write speed and obtain information from
