I've tried to blank a dvd+rw with Brasero and Gnomebaker. After reading the log output, I wanted to run cdrecord from command line and it shed the following:

aser@ubuntu:~$ cdrecord driver=mmc_dvdplusrw blank=fast

Starting to write CD/DVD/BD at speed 4 in real BLANK mode for single session.
Last chance to quit, starting real write 0 seconds. Operation starts.
cdrecord: Cannot blank with non Ricoh based drive.
cdrecord: Cannot blank disk, aborting.
cdrecord: Some drives do not support all blank types.
cdrecord: Try again with cdrecord blank=all.

Tried the all option and:
cdrecord: Cannot blank with non Ricoh based drive.
cdrecord: Cannot blank disk, aborting.

żDoes this mean that blanking is not supported in cdrecord (nor Brasero nor Gnomebaker) for dvd+rw unless one has a Ricoh optical drive?. If so,
żIs there a workaround?. I've been through the cdrecord and genisoimage man pages but it's too thick for me](*,).

My Ubuntu is Gutsy Gibbon.

Thank you, guys.):P
