    Hey there..
    I'm on FreeBSD 8.. when i insert a blank dvd it mounts ok and shown to the desktop.. when i drag something and select "Write to Disk" brasero disc burning setup opens up and it has only the option of creating an image.. and "please insert a recordable cd/dvd ......."

    Whats the matter with it ? :S

    thx in advance..

    I don't know why Gnome supports brasero because it is as buggy as hell. A much better alternative is "sysutils/xfburn".

    So far I haven't had any issues with Brasero, until I hit FreeBSD, and then they weren't Brasero's fault.

    I had a bit of a battle getting DVDs burned, using anything, cdburn, k3b, brasero, etc. Sir Dice's link proved to be key. In particular, I had to add the following to /boot/loader.conf:
    Code:
    atapicam_load="YES"
    The permissions in /etc/devfs.conf as per the previous post also were necessary. Hope this helps someone.
