Re: Odd messages from cdrecord

I have been getting some odd warnings (see WARNING) in the
attachments) about media size, and the time to start burning is
sometimes several minutes. I see this on four machines, built
recently, some DVD some DVD-D/L capable, some running very recent
versions of cdrtools, no difference in behavior so I picked the
example most convenient. Brand of DVD and burner doesn't make much
difference, I buy cheap store brand DVDs, but tried a few brand name
with no change. All produce clean images reliably.
Looks as if the attachment got stripped by the incoming mailer, let me
try another type...
See attachment for details, results are perfect, so this is only for
information. Of course taking a minute or tow off the start time would
be really great if there's a trick to do so.
Let me know if more information is useful.
