Brasero doesn't show correct speed when burning

Bug #178482 reported by agostinomaurotto on 2007-12-24
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Fix Released
brasero (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

Only when burning dvd the speed combobox shows incorrect speeds:
instead of 1-2-4-8-16
shows 1-3-5-7-9-17
This happens with brasero6 only, with brasero 5 it was working correctly.
Moreover the program doesn't burn at the correct setting but goes to maximum anyway.

This happens with cd as well.

TerryG, you're completely wrong! GNOME bug #507651 is for a completely different issue: #507651 is about the ESTIMATED speed shown WHILE you burn, whereas this bug is about the speed you CHOOSE PRIOR to start the burning!

The correct upstream bug is: Bug 525501 – Brasero displays odd burning speeds (1-3-5-etc) instead of even values (2-4-8-etc)

The fix is absolutely trivial, *but* it was only tested on systems that had correct speeds with Brasero 0.6.1 (*NOT* 0.6.90!!!) and incorrect speeds with 0.7.0 and 0.7.1.

Both optical units that show this result are by LG:
-- laptop unit: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-T20N. Capabilities: CD-R: 24x; DVD-R/DVD+R: 6x ZCLV.
-- PC unit: GCE-8526B. Capabilities: CD-R: 52x.

These models are reported in dmesg anyway. I can't run sginfo, but these units are *very* popular.

I can't believe that *only* the LG units report speeds in KiB or in KB that get computed in incorrect Nx speed values in Brasero >= 0.6.90!
