here's the output from cdrecord when I attempt to do a dummy burn
cdrecord: WARNING: Data may not fit on current disk.
cdrecord: Notice: Overburning active. Trying to write more than the 
official disk capacity.

Trouble flushing the cache
does this mean it would not write properly or does it mean it wrote ok 
but providing me some warnings to take into consideration as in use at 
your own risk etc.
thanks in advance.
