           Summary: DVD burner not recognized
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: linux
        AssignedTo: ben.collins at ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: frederic.riss at gmail.com
         QAContact: kernel-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com

When using serpentine or nautilus-cd-burner, I can't burn CDs or DVDs because it
seems these tools can't find the DVD burner on my system : ncb only provides the
'write to file image' option, and serpentine displays a warning stating that it
can't find a recording drive.
The box is a Sony Vaio VGN-A215M laptop. The DVD burner is on hdc as the dmesg
seems to imply :

$ dmesg | grep hdc
[4294672.170000]     ide1: BM-DMA at 0xffa8-0xffaf, BIOS settings: hdc:DMA, hdd:pio
[4294673.718000] hdc: SONY DVD RW DW-D56A, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
[4294676.463000] hdc: ATAPI 24X DVD-ROM DVD-R CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache

Burning worked great with hoary.
