Brasero incorrectly detects blank-cd capacity

Bug Description

Using the GUI, when attempting to burn an audio cd, Brasero detects a Memorex 700MB blank-cd as an 800MB blank-cd. Brasero allows >700MB audio files to be assigned to a burning job for that blank-cd, simulates, burns and reports a successful burn. When cd is ejected then reinserted, Nautilus is unable to read any file properties for the resulting audio cd and hangs when requested to do so. At this point, Nautilus hangs Ubuntu if Nautilus is force-closed. This results in being unable to eject the cd or shutdown Ubuntu from the menu. This requires a Ctl-Alt-PrtSc+REISUB to reboot the hung system.

i expect Brasero to correctly report blank-cd size and prevent too many files from being added to a blank-cd. Failing that capability, I expect Brasero to report cumulative size of selected files for burning so that I may manually avoid adding too many files for blank-cd capacity.
