problem erasing CD-RW


I have a CD-Rewritable 80min/700MB 4X-10X. After writing/burning Ubuntu7.04 to it, I cannot erase or format the rewritable
CD-RW. I tried to quick and complete erase and it gives me an error message as follow:

System
-----------------------
K3b Version: 0.12.17

KDE Version: 3.5.5 "release 45"
QT Version: 3.3.7
Kernel: 2.6.18.2-34-bigsmp
Devices
-----------------------

cdrecord
-----------------------
This is wodim, not cdrecord. Don't expect it to behave like cdrecord in any

way, don't refer to it as "cdrecord". Send problem reports to
debburn-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org, don't bother Joerg Schilling with any
problems caused by this application.

Is there any way to erase this CD-RW for recording again?

schilling is the guy that really knows what he's doing, but there have been arguments about licenses and stuff.
