I suspected but was in doubt because of your
mail client's time zone.

The modes impose certain restrictions or side
effects which vary with media types. Rather
than writing a fat howto about the right choice
i introduced API call
which gets readily programmed job parameters:
struct burn_write_opts *opts, struct burn_disc *disc
and then chooses a suitable mode - or tells why
there is none.
cdrskin offers -tao, -sao, -dao by cdrecord
traditions. If none of them is given, then
it lets burn_write_opts_auto_write_type()
In xorriso i do not offer a user's choice
currently. But if Heiko's problem would have
turned out to be due to DAO then i would have
had to introduce such an option.
I propose you add a "AUTO" alternative to the
"SAO" / "TAO" choice.
(burn_write_opts_auto_write_type() should be
called when all other settings are made to opts
and disc. Media state, -multi, number of tracks
... everything does matter for the decision.)
You can also use burn_write_opts_auto_write_type()
for checking whether the write mode set with
burn_write_opts_set_write_type() is suitable
together with the other parameters. (flag bit0)
Have a nice day :)
