Hello I can confirm this bug as well.  I recently installed a new DVD
burner the Plextor PX-760A a dual layer DVD burner on pata.  CD disc
worked perfectly but not DVDs.  Howver running the python script
attachment available here allows the DVD burner to work perfectly for
DVD disc as well.  The DVD burner is a secondary master with no
secondary slave.  It is E-IDE (ATAPI).

Am I correct in assuming that I can run your python script automatically
via sessions>startup programs menu entry?

python cdcaps.py /dev/hdc
CDO_USE_FFLAGS returned 13
