Re: cdrecord doesn't appear to support high speed media (4x-12x)

I'm running FreeBSD 4.11-STABLE and I have a Toshiba SD-R5002 (DVD-RW)

doesn't generate any error messages until I try to mount it. Memorex 1x-4x
media works fine. I even tried speed=4 with cdrecord when using the high
speed media, but it fails in same fashion.
Since I burn 40x all the time using Linux and cdrecord, I think you look
in the wrong place for the problem. In the order I think most likely:
1 - drive firmware
2 - media
3 - BSD not configured properly for the operation
and only then
4 - some obscure cdrecord bug which doesn't hit Linux and Solaris users
Under FreeBSD ports, the description for cdrecord gives this web site:
but it's no longer there.
I would like to hear more about that...

It seemed like a good idea at the time
