Thanks for reporting this bug and any supporting documentation.

Ubuntu doesn't use cdrecord but wodim (/usr/bin/cdrecord is just a symlink for compatibility). I think linking the cdrecord manpage to wodim would improve usability.

Since this bug has enough information provided for a developer to begin work, I'm going to mark it as confirmed and let them handle it from here. Thanks for taking the time to make Ubuntu better!

Changed in cdrkit:
status: New → Confirmed

From a mail, I know hat the bug reporter is interested in the original cdrecord.

Please also note that you don't have the permission to use the name "cdrecord"
for something that is not the original software. Thank you
