One for DVD+RW/hcn.html

Hi Andy,

i got one for your hcn.html

INQUIRY:                [HL-DT-ST][BD-RE  GGW-H20L ][YL03]

This drive does not like format type 0x30 with
sub type 3 Quick Certification. Only sub type 2
(i.e. full formatting) works ... and needs 4900

Format type 0x00 works and needs about 30 seconds.

I stumbled over this because xorriso could not
format unused BD-RE by this format parameter list:
  00 82 00 08 00 B4 74 00 C3 00 30 00

When i learned why dvd+rw-format formats fast and
successfully, i found that it can produce about the
same format lists too.
This one is similar enough to fail:

  $ dvd+rw-format -ssa=min /dev/sr1
  * BD/DVD±RW/-RAM format utility by <appro@fy.chalmers.se>, version 7.1.
  * 24.2GB BD media detected.
  * formatting .:-[ FORMAT UNIT failed with SK=5h/INVALID FIELD IN
    PARAMETER LIST]: Input/output error

It's format parameter list is
  00 82 00 08 00 B8 74 00 C3 00 10 00

The problem appears with used and with unused media
 formatted:             11826176*2048=24220008448
 00h(3000):             11826176*2048=24220008448
 30h(3000):             11826176*2048=24220008448
 30h(5000):             11564032*2048=23683137536
 30h(1000):             12088320*2048=24756879360
 31h(800):              12219392*2048=25025314816

 unformatted:           12219392*2048=25025314816
 ... same list as above ...

Have a nice day :)
