    When trying to burn to DVD, InfraRecorder gives error message and aborts:

    Started to write disc in real write mode.
    Started to write track 1.
    Input/Output error. write_g1: scsi sendcmd: no error CDB: 2A 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 1F 00 status: 0

    (Using InfraRecorder version 0.43.1.0 (x86) on Win2k SP4)

      Troubleshooting rundown:

      • Try other DVD media (no joy).
      • Reboot (no joy).
      • Uninstall, reinstall InfraRecorder (no joy).
      • Uninstall, reinstall DVD drive (no joy).
      • Flash DVD drive firmware (no joy).

      and then...

      • Install CDBurnerXP and attempt DVD burn (success!)
      • Try InfraRecorder again (success!)

      I have no idea what accounts for this.

      Aha, I see I'm encountering the same error reported earlier by optron2k in the thread "DVD+RW?" Apparently InfraRecorder (or is it cdrtools?) is unable to burn a virgin DVD+RW, but once it's been burned by some other program, then IR has no problem with it. This is very odd, because I know that a month or two ago I was using IR to burn fresh DVD+RW with no problem at all.

      FWIW, I've tried IR with every other cdrtools win32/cygwin build that I've been able to find out there but without any better results.

      Hmm, is it just that I need to first use the format/erase function to prepare a fresh DVD+RW? Any way to have InfraRecorder automatically prompt to format when it encounters a fresh rewritable disc?
