This is a continuation of a thread that forked:
Wheezy amd64 XFCE how to burn Blu-Ray (BD-R )discs?
Recommendations for Linux-friendly Blu-Ray writing drives?
Note that there is some confusion as to the "correct" drive model number:
1. The retail box that the drive came in says BDR-2206.
2. The label on the drive says BDR-206UBK
3. Squeeze dmesg reports PIONEER BD-RW BDR-206.
4. Windows XP Device Manager reports PIONEER BD-RW BDR-206.
I moved the drive to another machine that had a LITE-ON SHM-165H6S
CD/DVD RW drive that I've been using to burn CD-R and DVD-R using
Squeeze and Brasero without any issues.
Using Squeeze and Brasero, the drive burns CD-R discs that have the
correct directory structure, but almost every file is corrupt
(.checksum.md5 looks okay). Burned BD-R discs are coasters.
Using Windows XP and Cyberlink Media Suite 8 (provided in the retail
box), the drive burns CD-R data discs correctly OOTB. The drive burns
~12 GB video files to BD-R correctly if I select UDF 2.6. (It was
necessary to download and install the Toshiba Windows XP UDF 2.5 driver
to be able to read such discs.)

dvd+rw-tools was already installed.
udftools wasn't -- now it is.
That suggested pmount -- now pmount is installed.
That suggested hal -- now hal and hal-info are installed.
They suggested gnome-device-manager -- now gnome-device-manager and
libgnome-device-manager0 are installed.
Gnome Device Manager reports the drive as a PIONEER BD-RW BDR-206.
Burning a CD-R using Squeeze and Brasero -- the directory structure is
correct, but *every* file except .checksum.md5 is corrupt!
So, the drive works fine under Windows XP and fails horribly under Debian.
Any suggestions for getting the drive working under Debian?
