Bug Description

When adding files to the compilation (one of which was over 5.5Gb in size), on the progress bar at the bottom of the GUI it said there is 4.4 Gb free, no matter how many data I added (the graphical representation of the bar was OK, and same for the "estimated project size" at the very bottom).
The compilation was burned successfully.
I'm using Mint 9 x32, kernel 2.6.32-24-generic-pae.
brasero 2.30.2-0ubuntu1
Media used: Memorex 8.5 Gb.

Hi. This is not a bug, this describes the free space on the media itself. Of course, one can question whether it would be an improvement to show that space reflect the changes as they are defined, but that requires a blueprint on brasero, not a bug.

OK, I understand that it doesn't dynamically change upon adding data, but being a dual-layer disc, shouldn't it have said something around "8.4 Gb free" instead of "4.4 Gb", which is incorrect?

Maybe. I'm leaving that to the appreciation of the upstream developers.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. The issue that you reported is one that should be reproducible with the live environment of the Desktop CD of the development release - Oneiric Ocelot. It would help us greatly if you could test with it so we can work on getting it fixed in the next release of Ubuntu. You can find out more about the development release at . Thanks again and we appreciate your help.
