Description Andrea Santilli 2006-04-08 19:25:13 UTC
Description of problem:
cdrecord cannot format any cdrw. this happens both on a
nec 4550 (dvd burner) and a liteon ltr52328s so i think this is a problem which
is not related to any specifical hardware.
This problem is present on both fc4 and fc5.
