Testing on K3B which unmounts the disk and does not blank it. Instead,
it reports success and says that you do not need to blank the disk, you
simply can overwrite it. At reinsertion, DVD-RW still has all files on

K3b Version: 1.0.5

KDE Version: 3.5.10
QT Version:  3.3.8b
Kernel:      2.6.28-11-generic
PLEXTOR DVDR   PX-755A 1.02 (/dev/sr0, ) [CD-R, CD-RW, CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD-R DL, DVD+R, DVD+RW, DVD+R DL] [DVD-ROM, DVD-R Sequential, DVD-R Dual Layer Sequential, DVD-R Dual Layer Jump, DVD-RW Restricted Overwrite, DVD-RW Sequential, DVD+RW, DVD+R, DVD+R Dual Layer, CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW] [SAO, TAO, RAW, SAO/R96P, SAO/R96R, RAW/R16, RAW/R96P, RAW/R96R, Restricted Overwrite, Layer Jump]

** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: brasero
  One of two errors happen when trying to blank a disk:
  1) Brasero reports that the blanking was successful and ejects the CD. At reinsertion, user finds that the CD is not blanked.
  2) If "Fast blanking" is checked, the error "Unknown error" is displayed
- Media is a DVD-R
+ Media is a DVD+RW
  Device is unknown (when using wodim*), but I think it's a SATA DVD-RW
  *$ wodim --devices
  wodim: No such file or directory.
  Cannot open SCSI driver!
  For possible targets try 'wodim --devices' or 'wodim -scanbus'.
  For possible transport specifiers try 'wodim dev=help'.
  For IDE/ATAPI devices configuration, see the file README.ATAPI.setup from
  the wodim documentation.
  Device list from hwinfo get stuck on the Optical drive
  $ hwinfo
  > block.5.1: /dev/sr0 cache
  But then output the following concerning the Optical drive:
  57: SCSI 100.0: 10602 CD-ROM (DVD)
