Package: cdrw-taper
Version: 0.4-1
Severity: important

As stated in man page, growisofs doesn't overwrite already written DVD-RW in non-interactive mode, resulting in the following message trying to flush a backup:

WARNING: /dev/hda already carries isofs!
About to execute 'mkisofs -J -R -pad -quiet /mnt/raid_sata/cdrw-taper/DAY5 | builtin_dd of=/dev/hda obs=32k seek=0'

:-( write failed: Wrong medium type
The directory for _label_ remains to be dumped.

A workaround is tho prepend the growisofs command in taperlib.pm with a format command:

$command = "$self->{DVDRWFORMAT} -blank $mountDev; sleep 1m; $self->{GROWISOFS} -use-the-force-luke -Z $mountDev -J -R -pad -quiet $dir"
