and got

You don't have to read the story, but at the end you'll find links for a shell script that will erase CDs. You can perform a fast erase or full.

Burning CDs On A Remote Machine

I wrote that script on 12.2 and have used the script since moving to 13.1.

Should work on 12.0 but I don't sell warranties.

It was kind of you. However, your script, of which I should care for the erase funcion, shouldn't I, is essentially what I did: to use blank= fast/all. As for $DRYRUN, I ran with -eject -dummy first. All identical. The -eject is a Philips-some-models thing.
