Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: brasero

I have a mounted data CD and I asked Brasero to copy it to an image
file.  I would have preferred an ISO image, but would have taken
anything if it could only do it at all.  Brasero went through the
formalities then claimed that the module cdrdao was not available.  I
checked with synaptic and found that the module was present.  Just to be
sure, I flagged it for re-installation and ran dpkg using synaptic.

After the re-install completed, Brasero continued to refuse in the same
way.  This has not been a useful package for some time, and it should be
cleaned up.  Maybe there are just too many cooks in this pot.

Brasero version: 2.30.2-0ubuntu1\
UBUNTU version 10.04 plus upgrades to date.

I was trying to create a short-cut to mounting these disks repeatedly as
this may damage them.  I have used the disks directly to iinstall the
relevant software, but would rather not if I could keep an on-line copy.

Brasero's score:  F-
