At least i cannot see that in byte 1 the value 04 from
the previous command is overwritten. So i expect this
04 to be sent again with the next command. In libburn
this command is sent with byte 1 == 00.
Well, it seems not to matter.

dvd+rw-tools usually first inquire the number of descriptors
by a "Maximum Number of Descriptors" (bytes 8+9) of 1.
I read from MMC-5 rather the idea to use 0 for this purpose.
Nevertheless in libburn i allow a reply of about 32 kB
without inquiring the reply size first.
In the case of Giulio's situation there are only two
descriptors returned. So it can hardly be a matter
of a fat data transfer.
If the drive or the system is taking offense from
a command that allows 100 descriptors (= 1600 byte)
then libburn would be affected too.
One could find out by downloading and installing
and then running
test/telltoc --drive /dev/scd1
watching for output like
Speed descr. : 5540 kB/s, 4482.6 MiB, DVD+RW
Speed descr. : 3324 kB/s, 4482.6 MiB, DVD+RW
If those don't appear, then libburn is in trouble.
Have a nice day :)
