wodim not recognising DVD

When I first burned a DVD using wodim with the command:

wodim test.iso

where test.iso is about 4Gb in size, the DVD came out perfectly, however, when I do it again with a second blank DVD I get an error message stating there's a CD in the drive. Is there a way to basically reset wodim so it will recognise the DVD in the drive instead of thinking it's a CD in the drive?

The exact message I get is:

wodim: No write mode specified.
wodim: Assuming -tao mode.
wodim: Future versions of wodim may have different drive dependent defaults.
