Description Francis Earl 2008-08-21 13:26:57 UTC
Description of problem:
When trying to use the built in Nautilus CD Burner to burn an ISO to a CD-RW, the resulting burned cd is unreadable in any way. There are no errors, and things seem to progress normally, but when trying access the media, all I get is a message "The media cannot be mounted". This was an installer CD, so I attempted to boot to it hoping it was simply a nautilus issue, but my system started going nuts until I restarted again.

I also tried to read what was on the disk on a Windows machine, wondering if it would be able to make anything of the resulting data... it crashed explorer.exe repeatedly.

I tried to do the same thing directly via wodim, and it errorred out after trying to format the disk for writing, claiming it couldn't figure out where to start writing. This disk appears to still be usable however, and doesn't give issue when trying to mount it...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
I didn't repeatedly try it, I don't have that many CD's currently... I tried it twice, with the same results.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Burn an ISO to a CDRW
2. Try to read this CD
Actual results:
Unreadable disk.

Expected results:
Bootable installer disk

Additional info:
Please don't just disregard this, I know there is limited info, but at the very least nautilus should display error messages similar to what wodim itself states. Nautilus should not be trying to write to disks despite what wodim says about issues. Also, perhaps someone should look at any issues in wodim with formatting the media?

Seems this was disregarded... go figure... closing
