CDRECORD writes a CD correctly and fixates it but then hangs and the
process cannot be killed.  System has to be re-booted to regain access to
cd writer.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  cdrecord fisher-i386-powertools.iso

Actual Results:  cdrecord gets to :
fixating ....
and then stops, the CD writer shows some activity then the light goes out
and CDRECORD never exits

Expected Results:  CDRECORD should exit and give a new shell command prompt

System specification: Yamaha CRW8824S  Rev: 1.00, Adaptec AHA-7850 (rev 3),
AMD Athlon 1.2GHz

I cant reproduce this.
Comment 2 Laurence Page 2001-04-24 06:51:03 EDT
Further investigation shows the problem to be a conflict between cdrecord &
magicdev.  With magicdev disabled cdrecord works perfectly.  I suspect magicdev
is trying to mount the disk before cdrecord has quite finished with it.

I have got the same result (hangs the system, need to reboot it),
when I am trying to blank a rewritable-CD

reproductible all the time:
cdrecord  blank=all -v dev=0,5,0

but I am able to write simple CD ?

there was no such behavior before the update from 7.0 to 7.1 !
