Hi all, I was wondering has anyone else problems with DVD-RW disks under Fedora as I do? I've got a dual-boot laptop and with WinXP DVD±RW disks work (read/write/erase) all ok. But with Fedora only DVD+RW are fully working, DVD-RW disks can be read but erase fails. So am I the only one with this problem or is this a more general issue? I've filed a bug report about this few months ago but got no reply: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=330651
If you have cdrecord installed, try this as a workaround: cdrecord dev=/dev/dvd -force erase=fast Replace "/dev/dvd" with the proper device if that symlink isn't right on your system. You need the "-force" to get around whatever it is that the drive is complaining about. -- Bob Nichols "NOSPAM" is really part of my email address. Do NOT delete it.
