Here the problem first:
$ cdrwtool -d /dev/sr0 -q
using device /dev/sr0
4085KB internal buffer
setting write speed to 12x
Settings for /dev/sr0:
Fixed packets, size 32
Mode-2 disc

I'm going to do a quick setup of /dev/sr0. The disc is going to be blanked and formatted with one big track. All data on the device will be lost!! Press CTRL-C to cancel now.
ENTER to continue.

Initiating quick disc blank
Disc capacity is 333748 blocks (667496KB/651MB)
Formatting track
wait_cmd: Invalid argument
Command failed: 04 17 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 - sense 05.26.00
format disc: Invalid argument


Now the Information:
$ cdrwtool -d /dev/sr0 -i
using device /dev/sr0
4085KB internal buffer
setting write speed to 12x
