So this simulation is usable only for first sessions on blank media.

So from the view of xorriso commands, there is only the task of

So from the view of xorriso commands, the only task which makes

A special case are BD-R, which xorriso may format but will not bring

Ill media stay ill media and should be replaced as soon as possible.
Formatting of unused DVD+RW and BD-RE is done by xorriso automatically.
Just start a normal write run. DVD-RAM are sold formatted.
De-formatting is only possible with DVD-RW.
