cdrecord : Trying to use ultra high speed+ medium


I'm trying to erase a CD-RW and get the following error. I've tried K3b, Xcdroast and Nautilus from gnome but get always the same error. My device is :

HL-DL-ST DVDRAM GSA-4082B... I bought it from IBM as a RAMBO IBM Combo (but BIOS, windows and linux recognize it as an LG writer). Anyway, I can't get to erase CD-RW. I'm running Mandriva 2006 PowerPack.

"/usr/bin/cdrecord: Trying to use ultra high speed+ medium on a writer which is not
compatible with ultra high speed+ media."

Your problem seems to be that youre media record speed range is higher than the speed range that your CD is capable of recording at.

Thanks for answering. I thought that too, but I'm trying at 1x Speed with a CD-RW, not even a DVD. I can manage to do everything with that recorder in windows, but not in linux. from the code, I think that maybe there's an issue with buffering or so. Any suggestioons?

"/usr/bin/cdrecord -v gracetime=2 dev=/dev/hdb speed=4 -tao driveropts=burnfree -eject blank=fast -force "

Actually you are trying speed=4.
