I try to check drive:

Media Error: 0 Device Not Ready: 0 No Device: 0 Recoverable: 0
Illegal Request: 2 Predictive Failure Analysis: 0

No Device not ready errors!

So, why drive is not ready? I rebooted the server several times but it didn't help.

I asked a guy at the lab to check drive's tray, it is loaded.

Your post title reads:

but your system says:

It may be that your DVD drive does not like the media you are trying to use.

I would first try some different media to see if you get a different result.

You have this output:-
Code:
cdrecord: If you need DVD-R/DVD-RW support, ask the Author for cdrecord-ProDVD.
cdrecord: Free test versions and free keys for personal use are at ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/cdrecord/ProDVD/

Did you follow the advice? You may only be able to record CD media, or maybe nothing at all until you fix this.

Where is the cdrecord that you're using? Is it the one you expect?
