D'oh... Ok I compiled in atapicam and it sees my drives on boot.

but :-
su-2.05b# dvd+rw-format -blank /dev/cd1
* DVD±RW/-RAM format utility by <>, version 4.10.
* 4.7GB DVD+RW media detected.
- illegal command-line option for this media.
- you have the option to re-run dvd+rw-format with:
   -lead-out to elicit lead-out relocation for better
              DVD-ROM compatibility, data is not affected;
   -force to enforce new format (not recommended)
              and wipe the data.

I still seem to be doing something wrong.
