It should also work as non-superuser if you have rw-permission
for the /dev/sr0 file.

This should not have happened.

That is the intention. Normally it works. (I have two BD drives
and got no such complaints from others yet.)

We will have to inspect the command dialog between program and burner.
Please repeat this with option -V and catch the (lengthy) output in
a file:

   cdrskin -V -v dev=/dev/sr0 blank=as_needed -eject 2>&1 |  tee -i /tmp/cdrskin.log

Please send the resulting file  /tmp/cdrskin.log  .

After that, you may give dvd+rw-tools a try:

  dvd+rw-format /dev/sr0

But i do not expect that its FORMAT commands will have more success
than the ones of libburn. Well, one never knows ...

Have a nice day :)
