FYI, in case youve not heard of it: growisofs also exists, see manual below.

        comes in some variant versions from different people/
        packages, see notes by Joerg Schilling (mkisofs author)

growisofs is part of dvd+rw-tools

man growisofs
       growisofs - combined mkisofs frontend/DVD recording program.

       growisofs   [-dry-run]   [-dvd-compat]  [-overburn]  [-speed=1]  -[Z|M]
       /dev/dvd <mkisofs-options>

       growisofs was originally designed as a frontend to mkisofs  to  facili-
       tate  appending  of  data  to ISO9660 volumes residing on random-access
       media such as DVD+RW, DVD-RAM, plain files, hard  disk  partitions.  In
       the  course  of  development  general purpose DVD recording support was
       implemented, and as of now growisofs supports  not  only  random-access
       media,  but  even mastering of multisession DVD media such as DVD+R and
       DVD-R/-RW, as well as Blu-ray  Disc.  In  addition  growisofs  supports
       first-/single-session  recording  of arbitrary pre-mastered image (for-
       matted as UDF, ISO9660 or any other file system, if formatted  at  all)
       to all supported DVD media types.
