This explains why xorriso or dvd+rw-format can open the drive
device file. (The failure to re-format is a different problem.)

No one in Debian user has been able to shed any light on the problem.
I am not a kernel hacker, but rather a self-proclaimed expert for
optical drives and ISO 9660.

My best guess is that the kernel believes the medium is read-only
(like BD-ROM) and thus refuses any attempt to use it for writing
via the normal POSIX system interface.

But i do not know how to inquire the kernel's view on the medium.
The drive sees a BD-RE and has no scruples to write data to it.
But the kernel seems to see a problem with writing.

Thanks Thomas.

I'm wondering if the problem is the iso9660 file system that K3B put onto the disc? That would make the medium read-only so far as normal file I/O is concerned. Perhaps when faced with read-only media, the kernel simply assumes that the device itself is read-only.
