 You need to set the SCSI option in the Kernel, and

 After that:

 and the following in etc/fstab

> /dev/sda  /mnt/dvd  ext2  user,noauto,rw,suid,exec 0 0

 Give yourself the following aliases:

> alias format-dvd="mke2fs -b 2048 /dev/sda -c"
> alias mount-dvdram="mount /dev/sda /mnt/Bay -t ext2"

 Then format the DVD-RAM. When it terminates, mount it.
 It works like an (slow) HardDisk.
