From the manpage:
       To use growisofs to write a pre-mastered ISO-image to a DVD:

            growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=image.iso

       where image.iso represents an arbitrary object in the filesystem,  such
       as  file,  named pipe or device entry. Nothing is growing here and com-
       mand name is not intuitive in this context.

So, while untested by me:
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/cd1=/dev/cd0
should work.


Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
