cdrw howto mount

I would like to mount a blank CDRW so that I can write to it from a cron job every night.

I would like to be able to write to this media as if it were a normal hard drive - not using a "cdrom create" program.

Is this possible?

How should I mount and format the CDRW?

I think you'll need to look at packet-writing - the UDF filesystem. Try searching udf at freshmeat and see what apps there are to help you.
