I did a clean install of ubuntu 10.4 on a dell Inspiron 5150 (cd/dvd-drive = CDRW/DVD SBW-242).

I can burn a blank cd by means of Brasero (brasero indicates the correct number of bytes available). If one
clicks on the desktop-icon (mounted device) -> properties : 0 bytes used, 0 bytes free ==> wrong number
of free bytes is indicated).

However if I insert a blank DVD, there is some activity on the drive, but no errors are generated (dmeg, debug , ...)
nor a mounted-icon is generated. Brasero can't burn the data (no media)
