Wrong. Regardless of if you do a full blank, or a fast blank, you will
recover all space on a cdrw. Think of a full blank as a full floppy
format in windows, and of a fast blank as a quick floppy format. As for
not being able to regain space on a cd even if you erased stuff on it,
this only happens if you use udf on a cdr disk, or on a cdrw disk that
is not being used in a cd burner.
