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. Previ‐
ously written data is not affected by this operation. Useful for
addressing DVD-ROM compatibility, or playability of already
recorded media in legacy units.
