I can confirm this. Adding steps to reproduce into the description,
marking Confirmed and setting Medium importance - moderate severity on
core application.

** Changed in: brasero (Ubuntu)
   Importance: Low => Medium

** Changed in: brasero (Ubuntu)
       Status: Incomplete => Confirmed

** Summary changed:

- burning files containing % creates error
+ files with % in name within folder fail to burn

** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: brasero
  maybe similar to this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/brasero/+bug/307957
  error log attached.
  burning the image just breaks up and gives attached error log. the only
  thing i can think of that could create this error is the % in the
  filenames. when i removed them from some files i was able to burn them.
- hope this helps
+ ----------------
+ Note: This only happens when the files with a % in the name are INSIDE another folder, if they are burned to the root folder there is no problem.
+ ----------------
+ Steps to reproduce:
+ - Either create or rename some files with a % sign in the name.
+ - Burn to root folder of any CD/DVD using Brasero -- no problem.
+ - Create a folder, and insert the % files into this folder, and place the folder onto the root directory on the CD/DVD i.e. /cdrom0/blah/eoio%wihw.jpg
+ - Brasero fails
+ Not sure if this might be brasero itself or cdrkit/cdrecord, needs
+ further testing.

files with % in name within folder fail to burn
