"Move to Trash" option misleading

Bug Description

When removing items from the CD/DVD creator folder, the right click menu gives the misleading "Move to Trash" option.

I didn't feel sure as to whether it would affect the original file or just the link. Additionally, the link isn't actually moved to the Trash, it's just deleted.

Could this be replaced with "Remove from disc" or something?

Reported upstream in 2004. I've just noticed the same problem still exists in an up to date copy of Ubuntu Hardy Heron. So here's a little 'me too' bump for the bug.

This one waits for the fix – do we have any good proposals for what should replace the misleading text?

Been looking @ this bug today. And it seems its not that easy to fix. The nautilus-menu-provider only provides a function to ADD menu items. But if we want to replace/rename a menu item, it would need some dirty hacks in Nautilus!

Also nautilus-cd-burner is depreciated, and will be replaced by Brasero in Gnome! So its not worth spending alot of time on this!

nautilus-cd-burner is going to be dropped from GNOME/Ubuntu, and the fix appears to be nontrivial.
