RE: Porblems creating RW discs in K3B

Yep.  Do the math.  ~1,000 r/w cycles X $cd-r = BIG SAVINGS.  Unless you
are burning something for permanent record, the choice is clear.  Those
CD-Rs sure do make nice coasters, though...

Well cdrecord et al can *blank* a CD-RW disk so that you can use it
again. That is a very good reason to use CD-RW media.

At the moment UDF formatted discs that can be treated like a hard drive
are not supported but I believe support is coming.
