I was curious to tar directly to a blank dvd+rw. I tried:

 tar -cvf /dev/cd1  root0-090107.gz root1-090116.gz
 a root0-090107.gz
 a root1-090116.gz

I got the prompt back but the dvd device stays busy (on the unit, the light
flashes non stop). Any ideas?

perform ANY read from the drive and that's all :)
