Got it. It works for me now! This is with a DVD-RAM drive that
identifies itself as a "MATSHITADVD-RAM SW-9572, , F100" using a cheapo
DVD-RAM disk.

This is really cool, but there's still an issue. I'd like to use this
for backup, but I need a way to automate this from the command line. My
ideal tool be a single command with an option to say "just put it in
the given path in the first logical volume on this disk," so that my
script doesn't have to go and read the disk first to figure out what the
logical volume name is.


    udfcp -1 /staging-area/myhost-20040908-3.dump.gz \

Where "-1" says to use the first logical volume.

In the end, I'd really want to be able to mount this as a filesystem, though,
so I could rsync directly to it.
