Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: brasero

My computer has a CD-RW drive and a Samsung SH-S223Q/BEBN DVD writer
drive. I am trying to copy an appendable data DVD burned using Sonic
RecordNow! in Windows. Because there's only one DVD drive I am reading
from the same drive I will be writing to.

In Brasero "Select disc to copy" comes up as:

DATA DVD-R "crdom0"

then for "Select disc to write to" I also have

DATA DVD-R "cdrom0"

When I click the "Copy" button I get the error "impossible to find a
format for the temporary image".

Details of my machine:

richard at beast:~$ lsb_release -rd
Description:	Ubuntu 8.04.1
Release:	8.04
richard at beast:~$ apt-cache policy brasero
  Installed: 0.8.1-0ubuntu2~hardy1

     0.7.1-3ubuntu1 0

I will attach the results of doing
