       dvd+rw-format - format DVD+-RW/-RAM disk

       dvd+rw-format [-force[=full]] [-lead-out | -blank[=full]] [-ssa[=none |
       default | max]] /dev/dvd

       The dvd+rw-format command formats dvd disk in the specified  dvd	 drive
       (e.g. /dev/dvd).

	      This forces to format dvd as new while wiping any existing data.

	      This blanks dvd while changing to sequential mode.

	      This  relocates the lead-out next to outermost written sector as
	      well as makes sure there is no virgin surface before it.	Previā€
	      ously written data is not affected by this operation. Useful for
	      addressing DVD-ROM  compatibility,  or  playability  of  already
	      recorded media in legacy units.
