Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

When making copies of a disk, it would be great if the user were able to specify a certain number of copies to be made.

For example, I've created a mixed audio CD and want to make 30 copies of it for my friends. This is still legal in some countries. Right now I believe I have to "copy a CD" 30 times, rather than copy a CD once in Brasero and ask that 29 more copies be made at the same time. Once the copying is started Brasero would burn one copy, eject the drive, prompt the user to insert blank media, and once blank media is detected another copy is made. Repeat until number of copies is achieved.

In order to do this in Gnome I have had to install k3b, as I could not find a way to do this using any native Gnome application (Brasero, Gnome Baker, Nautilus, Serpentine) that can make multiple copies of a disk when copying.

It looks like this feature is gone again in jaunty, at least I could not find it.

I also miss the feature so set the number of copies before a burning process.
It was there when I had Ubuntu 8.04 install with Brasero 0.8 or so..
but since the Install of Jaunty 9.04 the feature to set the number of copies is
not there anymore. This is a really useful feature so please add it back.
