I'm using Hardy, with latest updates.

Since upgrading from Gutsy to Hardy, I can no longer burn CDs/DVDs.

Now when I insert a blank CD-R or DVD-R into the drive, the drive spins
up briefly but nothing appears on the desktop.  With Gutsy, up came the
options to burn a disc.

Also, if I manually click on an ISO for burning, then it asks me to
insert blank media even though there already is one in the drive.

When I run the "cdinfo" command from the "cdtool" package, it outputs,
simply:

    no_disc

Exactly the same as when there is really no disc.  The "eject" command
still works.

I've tried two different brands of CD-R, and two different brands of
DVR-R, all gives the same results.

This is probably a software problem.  I have just booted Windows XP a
few minutes ago (not done that in months :-), and it detected all the
blank discs fine, bringing up a menu of burn options after I insert
them. I didn't actually try burning.

Then booting back to Ubuntu Hardy (after XP), it doesn't detect blank
discs.

This problem is worst since upgrading to Hardy: all blank media is not
detected.  With Gutsy, I did see this problem with one brand of CD-R,
but other discs were detected fine.

The machine is a Fujitsu-Siemens Si1520, and the output of "sudo hdparm
-I /dev/cdrom":

    ATAPI CD-ROM, with removable media
        Model Number:       _NEC DVD_RW ND-6750A                    
        Serial Number:      
        Firmware Revision:  2.42    

Kernel is 2.4.24-16-generic (current version in Hardy at the time of
writing).

Any other info required, please ask.
Much thanks.
