Brasero - Refuses to erase or record on CD-RW
For some kind of reason Brasero in Debian Jessie 8.3 refused to erase or record on a CD-RW that had been stopped in the middle of a write operation. Every try it refused to do its job and ejected the disc. The solution was to use wodim in a terminal to blank the disc. sudo wodim dev=/dev/cdrom blank=fast Reference for the command: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1641222 Note that you do not need to change /dev/cdrom. wodim does not seem to care, the actual machine had two drives and it detected the disc automatically.
