Description of problem:
After upgrading from FC5 to FC6 the CD/DVD Creator fails without showing any
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
After upgrading from FC5 to FC6, The CD/DVD Creator has the following behaviour
when trying to burn the FC-6 DVD image:
- After dragging the iso image to the CD/DVD Creator I click "Write to disk"
- The system goes to 100% CPU utilization for a long time (> 2 minutes)
- The dialog asking if I want to burn the iso image or the iso file appears. At
this point the dialog to select the target burner and speed is behind and
- I select to burn the image, Both dialogs close and nothing else happens,
control returns to nautilus.
The CD/DVD Creator Does not burn the DVD
The CD/DVD Creator should show the dialog to select the target burner.
If I execute the burner from the command line with the following command it

Does right-clicking on the iso and selecting write to cd work?
Yes, it works, although the CPU goes close to 100%, all of it used by the
nautilus-cd-burner process and it takes about 1 min and 20 seconds to pop up
the "write to disc" dialog.
I tried with a 66 mb ISO with exactly the same results: Closing after showing
the dialog asking if I want to burn the ISO, and taking 1 min 20 sec to show
the "write to disc" dialog if I execute the nautilus-cd-burner directly.
As a reference, my computer uses an Intel Celeron CPU 2.80GHz and has 512 MB
i can reproduce it, when using the "open the CD/DVD burner window etc..."
method. I tested it with CD-RW that wasn't blank. After blanking the CD-RW the
behaviour is the same. I noticed that it behaves slightly other way : after "The
dialog asking if I want to burn the iso image or the iso file appears." after i
click "Image" both dialog disappear.
With the "right-click the ISO" method, CD gets burned fine (although the CPU
usage is still at 100% for a while). However, the behaviour described in bug
