Re: dvd-rw problem
I recently started to try and burn DVD video on DVD-RW
discs. But after two 'dvd+rw-format', it didn't work
$ dvd+rw-format -blank /dev/hdb
* DVD?RW format utility by <firstname.lastname@example.org>, version 4.9.
:-( failed to locate "Quick Format" descriptor.
:-( can't locate appropriate format descriptor
* 34.0GB DVD-RW media in Sequential mode detected.
* blanking /:-[ PERFORM OPC failed with SK=3h/ASC=73h/ACQ=03h]: Input/output error
Everything(*) indicates poor media or poor support by your unit firmware
for this media brand. Check vendor for firmware update, try different
brand, preferably explicitly recommended by vendor. A.
(*) re-writable media performing as write-once, -two or -three times,
bogus media capacity, as well as failure to perform OPC.
