I noticed that when I use "cdrwtool -d /dev/hdd -q" to
format a cdrw in udf mode, the computer "freezes"
completely until the formatting has not ended.
The same happens during the blanking of the cdrw.
This happened both with kernel 2.6.0 and with kernel
2.4.18, both with cdrw 700mb and with cdrw 650mb.
My O.S. is debian woody.
Hard disk and cd burner are on the same ide channel, I
don't know that this is the problem.
Anyway with the same hardware and windows + inCd, the
formatting in udf mode doesn't cause the same problems.
Best regards, Paolo
