Apparently the drive reports information in a not completely consistent way. Drive manufacturers have done worse things. I suppose a fix is to look for such inconsistencies and correct or report them.

Alas this is too late to start working on for the 0.81 release. However it will be considered for the release after that.

And it's a DVD-RAM GSA-H20N Drive. My fault :D

cd-drive don't recognise the abillity of my drive to burn/erease dvd-/+rws but lists it as feature on top. I attached the output of cd-drive below. My drive is a GDR8162B by NG and I'm running the roling release of Arch Linux.
