Yussef, I have been using a Pioneer DVR-106 drive since August with 4.8. It is in a 1394 enclosure and works fine so far for doing backups for me on both DVD-RW and CD-RW. I am using dvdrecord to burn both DVD's and CD's. If memory serves me dvdrecord is based on the last open source version of cdrecord. The only "issue" I have at the moment is that I cannot use a UDF file system which would be nice with DVD-RW's. I'm sure someone is working on it. I've also thought of working on FreeBSD support for it myself. I can't comment about DVD+ because I have not used the drive for that.
