[SLUG] Blanking CD-RWs


I'm investigation how to blank CD-RWs at the moment.

Using cdrecord I can do "cdrecord blank=fast dev=0,0,0" to blank a CD
but it starts, ejects the CD after which I have to reinsert the CD and
press <CR> for it to continue.

I guess I can live with that but the real problem is that it only works
if the CD is mountable.

If I have CD-RW that has been munged buffer-underrun etc then it does
NOT work.

I've tried the -force flag but that doesn't work either.

I've looked through the info pages but can't see any other options to
rewrite the base data, regardless of what is/isn't there now.

Has anyone got a good way around this??

TIA.
