How do I burn using WODIM without needing exclusive access, without unmounting?

The --force option does not work.

(Yes, I know the risks.)

    Now I'm really curious why you think you need to do that. If you've mounted a FS on the DVD, the kernel may access the DVD at any time, completely screwing up the burning process by mixing SCSI commands from two sources. So you shouldn't access the mounted FS in the first place. Why do you think it's necessary to keep it mounted, if you can't access it? (Or is this an XY problem?). The question is a bit like "I want to change the tires on my car, but I want to keep driving at the same time. How do I do that?" – dirkt Nov 26 '18 at 7:58
