I'm wasn't aware of your scsi tools in cdrtools. The name is somewhat
misleading. A few days ago I wrote a post to zfs-discuss on methods
for resizing disks in order to ensure an equal size between different
disks. I suggested the sg3_utils in that post. Can your tools resize a
disk and restore it's capacity as well? I don't have time to look into
your tools at the moment. If so I'll post a follow up and include your
tools as well.
