Problems with blank uncompletely burned rewritable CD's in F16

I'm trying to blank *uncompletely burned* rewritable CD's with brasero:
brasero waits until such a CD is inserted, but nothing happens if I
insert the CD (Brasero does not recognize resp. has no access to such a
CD in the CD drive).

I'm using nautilus as file manager inside gnome-shell, and if I insert
such a CD, nautilus does not display the CD drive symbol if clicking
onto to "computer" icon on the desktop (seems to be the same behaviour
as brasero shows).

I did not try tu use k3b for such unclean CD's, but by using "wodim
blank=fast ...", the CD will be blanked properly.

Any comment?

Kind regards
