use dvd-ram under linux
Can someone tell me how to write to a dvd-ram drive (Panasonic LF-D521) under Ubuntu (or any other) Linux, preferably using the GUI (Gnome or KDE, etc.)?
Gnome will detect when I insert a DVD-RAM (or DVD-RW) disk and I can read it, but not allowed to write to it - it thinks the disk is read only. I can understand why the DVD-RW might not be allowed, since packet writing is perhaps not standardised on this type od disc, but DVD-RAM always supports UDF packet writing.
Also, can someone answer this question - where do people get detailed information about Linux? Is it trial and error? Don't answer "from the forums" because this does not answer where the information on the forums comes from.
