So forget my challenge to the drive seller.
Is the CentOS x86 machine a different one
than the Windows machine ?
Ok, need to reconsider:
There is no hard reason why a drive and a
particular media should work with Windows
and not with Solaris or Linux.
I am quite sure that NeroLinux was tested
I can write BD-R via a LG BD-RE GGW-H20L
NeroLinux reported a write error with no
error indication from the drive.
Can it be that not the drive is ill but the
Out of suspicion for now are the machines
(2 different ones failing).
But what about the USB cable and the USB
controller of the drive ?
Does it help to unplug and replug the cable
at both ends ?
Is the success with Windows really reproducible
in several attempts ?
(I once hunted a bug with DVD-RW where cdrecord
seemed to work ok, and libburn seemed to fail.
After eight attempts, cdrecord began to fail
and libburn began to show successes. Shrug.)
Have a nice day :)
