Hm, thats really strange.. especially as hwinfo now uses HAL to
gather this information. If i was to guess, i'd say you're using an "old" openSUSE version (prior to 10.2 or even 10.1) where hal didn't have Danny Kukawkas great fix for right capabilities detection of DVD-RW and also DVD+RW DL.

You are right on target. I'm still running 10.0.

None of the commands shows the complete feature set (as layed out by
plextor), and lshal actually says it does not do dvdrw ?
To me this really looks like a old hal version that doesn't detect this right.
rpm -q hwinfo hal
Have fun,
