Hi,

revision 2830 of the libburn SVN should fix
the bug with dummy CD TAO runs which have more
than one track.

If the drive returns an NWA which is smaller
than the last written address then this is
considered an error and leads to premature
end of the burn session.
I decided for that behavior even in dummy
mode because NWA 0 for the second track is
no realistic burn simulation and because i
assume it to be a firmware bug-or-feature
triggered by closing the simulated track.

The reason why my own drive returned NWA 0
has been circumvented. It hit my modern
DVD burners (SATA, USB)
 'HL-DT-ST'  'BDDVDRW GGC-H20L'
 'HL-DT-ST'  'BD-RE GGW-H20L'
 'TSSTcorp'  'CDDVDW SH-S203B'
but not my old CD burner (PATA)
 'LITE-ON '  'LTR-48125S'


Philippe:
It would be interesting to learn whether the
new SVN state fixes the problem with your drive
too.
What drive do you have ?

Have a nice day :)
