Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: brasero

I am trying to write a directory of image files to CD.  The files are of
around 3MB to 6MB each, and the overall data size is greater than will
fit on one data CD.

If I drag and drop the files into brasero (normally via its integration
with gnome) and then click Write to Disc, the size estimation process
runs and Disc Burning Setup tells me that there is not enough free space
on the CD-R and asks if I would like to burn the files across several
media.  I then click the Burn Several Discs button.  In the next window
I press Burn.

I would expect the program to prepare and write the first CD and then
prompt me to exchange it for a new blank and continue to write files to

The Burning CD window appears, and an image is created.  At the end of
the image creation process an error message tells me that "An unknown
error occurred".  The log file ends with the line "Session error  :
unknown (brasero_burn_record brasero-burn.c:2811)".

This behaviour is exhibited by both a 32 bit and a 64 bit system, using
Ubuntu 9.10 (karmic) with brasero version 2.28.2 from Karmic-updates.
