Feisty: "The following disc types are supported:<null>"

     For some reason, my ability to burn CDROMs and DVDs has vanished. I 
select an ISO in Nautilus, right-click to select "burn CD", and in that 
application, it seems to have completely forgotten my media types.

     Until recently I could burn 6-8 different kinds on the same burner. 
It used to tell me all the various kinds the burner told it, it could 
do.  But now, the list is empty and I'm outta luck.

     The hardware knows...the "Hardware Information" application under 
System->Preferences sees the device, and under the "Advanced" tab gives 
me all sorts of booleans like "storage.cdrom.cdplusr" and 
"storage.cdrom.dvd" as "true".

     So where's the confusion?
