Any plans or time estimation to support variable packet size?

BTW, can I currently work with packet writing if I only have a CDR? I know it
technically is possible, I've seen it done (not on Linux though), but I wonder
if it is possible with current codebase.

I've been working on this area lately and thought about implementing such support, but I am still not even sure it can really be done, short of hacking the udf filesystem to hell so it understands and issues commands to burn the variable length packets.

How did you format the existing disc? What does cdrwtool -i show? My guess is that you formatted this disc in windows or something and this disc isn't using packet mode at all, but rather has been formatted for mount rainier mode, in which case, you don't need pktcdvd at all to write to it.
