BE RW formatting times?view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – I was burning a data disc on to a 50 GB BE-RW, and as usual did a MD5SUM of the disc twice afterwards, to assure that it read consistently (at least after being written). To my surprise, I had one come up with different different MD5SUMs, so I figured I would format it again. Then I read about -format=full. So I figured, why not. That was almost two days ago. It is still formatting. (HowTos)
