SH: Erasing fast a cdrom?


hi,

to do that:
Code:
 cdrecord -v -dev=/dev/sr0  -blank=all -force
could be used.

but -blank=fast makes it really faster? Visibly not so much, right?

While this is mildly entertaining it isn't really helping the guy; he
wants to erase a CD-RW, not destroy it. Could you please reserve
this kind of joke for a pub setting? Ta.


Cheers,

I know what he meant but he said cdrom so I took him at his word.
I'm in a weird mood I guess.

I formally apologize.
