I have CD-R, CD-RW and DVD+RW disks, cdrtools works with all of them. 
I don't know about DVD+R/DL, DVD-R/DL, DVD-R and DVD-RW disks. Maybe the people
who have those types of disks could tell us if cdrtools works with them.

When I run cdrecord from cdrtools, it outputs the following messages, so I
guess it supports all CD/DVD formats:
