dvd +RW format problems
 
when trying to reformat a dvd +rw it will not mount. also i try to reformat from the various cd/dvd programs that come with PUPPY, only to get errors. i can write once to the disk but thats all. PLEASE HELP!

To blank a DVD+RW in Slackware, I use these two steps via CLI as root:
Code:

growisofs -Z /dev/dvd=/dev/zero
dvd+rw-format -force -lead-out /dev/dvd

You might need to change /dev/dvd to the proper device for your DVD drive.

NB: You do not mount the DVD to do this.
