I hope that is not broken. Just checked and the warranty ran out 3
months ago :-(.
Anyway I upgraded the firmware. The main reason I don't keep up with
the firmware like I should is I have to pull the drive to install the
firmware. Sony has a firmware updater that only works in windows. Such
is life the next time I purchase a dvd burner hopefully the unit will
have at least a "dos" firmware updater. Anyway with the new update
dvd+rw-mediainfo now gives info on the recorded disk!!!

The disk works fine with xine now. Correct me if I'm wrong but
according to the above information I need to finalize the disk? What
is the best way to finalize a disk?
Would "growisofs -M /dev/scd0=/dev/zero" be the best way? Could add
additional material to the disk since it is open?
Thanks for the information!
