growisofs and its man page.

growisofs' man page says, under -speed=,

"An option to control recording velocity. Most commonly you'll use -speed=1 with "no-name" media, if default speed settings messes up the media".

What is the meaning of "no-name" media. Would you mind telling me? Thanks.

Thanks a lot. But you must recognize the double quotes are confusing, no-name having a precise meaning.
