I created an Audio CD with Brasero. The CD consisted of two identical music tracks, transcoded from the same MP3 file (from an external USB drive, a Western Digital 1 TB "My Book" unit), with no 2-second break inserted between the tracks.

The CD played OK, and all seemed well.

I used Project > Save As to save it as a "Brasero audio project" on the same drive and in the same folder as the original MP3 file.

I closed Brasero and reopened it.

On the "Create a new project" page, I clicked on the name of the project under "Choose a recently opened project". The light on the USB drive came on and it seemed to have some activity, but then nothing happened.

I inserted a blanc CD-R and waited for the system to mount it.

Again, I clicked on the name of the project under "Choose a recently opened project". The light on the USB drive came on and it seemed to have some activity, but then nothing happened.

I clicked "Audio project: Create a traditional audio CD".

I used Project > Recent projects to select the recent project. The light on the USB drive came on and it seemed to have some activity, but then I got kicked back out to the "Create a new project" page.

Again, I clicked "Audio project: Create a traditional audio CD".

I used Project > Open to open the recent project manually. The light on the USB drive came on and it seemed to have some activity, but then nothing happened. No tracks were shown in the right pane. The status bar at bottom right still showed "Empty (1 h 20 free on CD-R)".

I added the MP3 file to the right pane manually again (twice, as before), and burned the CD-R successfully again.

It would be very useful if opening a saved project worked, especially when creating more complex CDs, as it would save time on reassembling the files to be burned.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thank you for the quick response. Does this mean that you are not seeing the same issue in Intrepid on your end? --Or would you like me to test this issue using Intrepid on my end? Can I test this using an Intrepid VM (e.g. in VirtualBox) without upgrading my main system to Intrepid? If so, then how?

Here's why I'm asking: I'm just a home user with one computer. I've finally got a fairly stable system for my hardware using Hardy (and an older kernel - long story). Hardy is an LTS release. I was hoping that it would last me for a while without major OS upgrades.

For this issue with Brasero, there is a work-around (re-creating the project manually). I would be very reluctant to upgrade my main system to Intrepid and risk my hard-won stability just to fix this issue.

Thanks in advance for clarifying your question and how I can help.

I cannot reproduce the problem with Brasero 0.8.3-0ubuntu1 on Ubuntu Jaunty. Pedro was asking if you could test with Intrepid to see if the issue still exists in the latest version; that is, if it is a bug that may have been solved in the latest release. It is understandable if you are reluctant to perform testing on your stable system, however since you appear to be the only reporter of this issue, and we cannot reproduce it, it would be helpful if you were able to test with the latest version of Brasero to see if the problem still exists. You can do this with a LiveCD that won't affect your current Hardy installation. Since Brasero 0.8.3 is now included with the Ubuntu Jaunty development release, it would be most useful to test with this version. Jaunty Alpha 2 should be available on December 18th with a LiveCD version which you can use. If you prefer to test with Virtualbox, this is fine as well.

Thanks again and we appreciate your help. Feel free to ask any questions if you are still unsure, we don't want to mess with your stable install :-)
