#70 HL-DT-ST GCC 4240N writing?

Richard Knepper

Is the Hitachi/LiteOn HL-DT-ST GCC 4240N CDRW-DVD
(found in a number of dell laptops) supported? When I
attempt to burn a bin/cue generated by vcdxbuild, I get
the following error[1]. Looking at google groups yields
another chap looking for information about burning
VCDs with cdrdao and the same drive.

Thanks in advance,
Rich Knepper

    I have one of these drives, and I get the same error -- some
    days. Other days it works fine. I haven't been able to
    figure out what variable is at work.
