Ubuntu 8.04.1, i386, Nautilus 2.22.3

I can reproduce the issue. When I try to write an ISO image to a DVD+RW
or DVD-RW and the rewritable disk s not empty, I am informed that disk
has to be erased. When I press ERASE button, I get an error after a
while that disk cannot be erased. and that is correct, DVD-RW disk has
to be formatted...

Nautilus should run format (not erase) for DVD rewritable disks. Or it
should offer a FORMAT button for DVD-RW and DVD+RW disks.

As a workaround, I run GnomeBaker and format a disk manually from Tools

Nautilus-cd-burner is unable to blank DVD-RW
