"should better not be used" is a bit twisted.

You could say:

 It is preferable not to use wodim for DVD or BD media.

Or:
 
 It's better to avoid using wodim when burning to DVD or BD media.

Or:

 Wodim has proved less reliable when used with DVD or BD media and is
 best avoided when burning to those media.

I'm learning in real time that it's easy to criticize but harder to come
up with something yourself.
