Ah, yes, sorry.. for DVD+R capabilities on commandline
i currently only know the output of "hwinfo --cdrom" (line ^ Features:) or to look in lshal (e.g. with
"lshal | grep dvdplus").

Have fun,
Frank
So, is hwinfo or lshal lying on my system (or both), or is Plextor lying ?

Model: "PLEXTOR DVDR PX-740A"

hwinfo:
Features: CD-R, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-R

lshal:
 storage.cdrom.dvdplusrdl = true  (bool)
 storage.cdrom.dvdplusrw = true  (bool)
 storage.cdrom.dvdplusr = true  (bool)
 storage.cdrom.dvdram = false  (bool)
 storage.cdrom.dvdrw = false  (bool)
 storage.cdrom.dvdr = true  (bool)
 storage.cdrom.dvd = true  (bool)

According to the retail box, and website (http://www.plextor.be/products/px-740a.asp?choice=PX-740A)
the features of the drive is:
DVD+R, DVD-R, DL DVD+R, DL DVD-R, CD-R, DVD+RW, DVD-RW, CD-RW

None of the commands shows the complete feature set (as layed out by plextor), and lshal actually says it does not do dvdrw ?

Best regards
Sylvester
