** Description changed:

  Binary package hint: brasero
- As of about yesterday, Brasero no longer recognises the DVD+RW drive (or
- perhaps it's the media?) that I've been using for ages. I've installed
- K3b, and that works just fine. This seems to have started since I
- blanked a DVD+RW disc in the drive from right-clicking it on the desktop
- and selecting "erase".
+ Steps to reproduce bug:
+ 1. Insert a DVD-RW disc into the DVD-RW drive
+ 2. Erase the media on the disc
+ 3. Attempt to burn something new onto the disc
- Win7 has no problem with the drive or media either.
+ What should happen:
+ Brasero detects the disc and burns medio onto it.
- I would gladly provide more information if anyone can tell me what would
- be useful.
+ Observed behavior:
+ Brasero does not detect the disc that it just erased. Other applications are able to detect the disc.
- ProblemType: Bug
- Architecture: amd64
- Date: Sat Jan 30 19:08:58 2010
+ Temporary workaround:
+ Use another disc burning application.
+ Other notes:
+ Brasero sometimes doesn't recognize discs with media on them, although this happens only about 1/10 times and can be fixed by manually unmounting and remounting the media.
