Re: cdrecord cannot blank CD RW

well my suggestion is you should follow this path:

I am using Fedora Core 4.

Application -> Sound & Video -> K3b

I used with this and I have erased my CD-RW so many times, just go through this , it's a very easy.

hope you will solve..

So am I, and when kde brings up the what do I do with this window after
inserting an audio cd for instance, I just tell it 'nothing', and
'mount' does not currently show it as mounted. I would assume that if it
was a writable cd, that I should be able to proceed.
