Hi Katata-san,
It's really a good idea to implement such command 
so that user can stop Full Formatting operation.
But we suggest to use the existent CLOSE TRACK/SESSION 
command with the Close Function 000b to do it.
What do you think?
Thanks a lot.
Best Regards,

Subject: Question for cancel method of RW-DL Format operation
Hello all,
Thank you for your answer to my question.
My next proposal does not change the description of the default format
for RW-DL media.
I have another question to members.
Full formatting of a RW-DL disc will take more than 1 hour by 2X regardless
IMMED bit setting.
In the case of RW-SL, we had a prospect of the higher speed data recording.
the beginning, Full format of RW-SL took 1 hour. Now it takes 10 min by 6X.
The other hands, the forecast of RW-DL formatting time may be 30 min by 4X.
Under this condition, I think that many of the end users should have a method
cancel the full format operation after it began.
In the current definition, all commands except several specials shall be
terminated with check condition "Formatting in Progress" during formatting.
Therefore user only can remove the power from the system.
I think that some method should be describe to stop the 1 hour operation.
Here is my idea.
1. use existing command
 Start Stop unit command for Stop, Eject and Sleep
2. use other existing command than No.1
3. create a new command
4. no such command or vender specific
Let me know your idea.
Best regards,
Keiji Katata
