http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi all... i've been trying to format/re-format a dvd-ram disc in OS11.2. can someone help me out? i tried using mkfs -t ext4 /dev/dvdrw.... this works, the disc is erased and ext4 is created on the disc, however the disc is read only :( am i doing something wrong. secondly, once a disc has a label set, is there a way to rename that disc to anything (Distributions)
