Description Michael Monreal 2009-01-22 09:52:58 EST
I originally filed this bug against GNOME's burning app Brasero[1] but the maintainer hinted me that this is a known and fixed bug on openSUSE:

Brasero does not detect any usable recorder devices, even after GNOME shows them as having blank/recordable media. As Luis suggested, restarting the HAL daemon just before starting brasero fixes the problem.

I'm running Rawhide atm but I think F10 could also be affected.

Here[2] is the openSUSE bug. There are various workarounds as it seems... what's the right way to solve this for Fedora?

Have you updated your Fedora 10 installation or tried Rawhide? In either case, can you let us know whether the issue is still happening, and give the current version of the HAL packages you're using? You can obtain that information by performing: rpm -qa hal\*

Sorry for not replying earlier. I'm running F11 Beta now and burning CDs works flawlessly.
Comment 4 Michael Monreal 2009-04-24 10:39:50 EDT
Ouch, that was too quick... the recorder is being shown, but the burn process fails :/
Comment 5 Michael Monreal 2009-04-24 10:49:03 EDT
Hmm... Brasero reported the burning as failed, but as far as I can see the disc was burned correctly. I will have to buy a new RW and test again.
Comment 6 Michael Monreal 2009-04-25 06:23:23 EDT
I'm marking this fixed because
a) today I cannot reproduce the problem
b) if there's a bug it's a new one; the bug reported here is fixed
Comment 7 Scott Glaser 2009-04-25 07:43:42 EDT
Thanks for your rapid response to this request for information. Based on your
last comment I am going to close this bug.  Should you experience these
symptoms again, feel free to open a new bug against the current component.
