Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: nautilus-cd-burner

I upgraded from Dapper Drake to Edgy Eft using the gksu "update-manager
-c" method. My optical drive is a HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4167B that worked
perfectly before the upgrade.

Steps to repeat error:
1. Open home directory, show hidden files with ctrl-H.
2. Insert blank DVD-R in drive. In the "Choose Disc Type" dialog, click "Make DVD".
3. Drag all files from home directory to CD/DVD creator.
4. Click "Write to Disc"

Expected behaviour:
"Write to disc" dialog appears with all controls disabled and "Calculating..." listed by "Data size". Trying to close the window causes the "not responding" dialog to appear.

I've tried "dmesg | tail" at the console, but the last relevant message is:
cdrom: This disc doesn't have any tracks I recognize!
