DVD-RAM read/write in Ubuntu

Following the Howto instructions found in this link

use mkudffs to format DVD-RAM.

Initially I am having problem format DVD-RAM disk after reading through the HOWTO it turns out was a user right issue.

I did a

"sudo chmod 777 /dev/pktcdvd/0"

then I can run

"mkudffs --media-type=dvdram /dev/pktcdvd/0"

without any error messages.

The rest is just follow Howto to mount the DVD-RAM disk.
