sorry, not clear what you are asking me to do.
running brasero --brasero-media-debug --debug &> brasero-debug.txt on the terminal produces a text file which says: 'Unknown option --brasero-media-debug
Run 'brasero --help' to see a full list of available command line options.'

your reply please. thanks in anticipation.

Yes you need to run that command, please also try it with Jaunty or Karmic, brasero version on 8.10 is known to not work correctly.

on running the command, the debug.txt says 'Unknown option --brasero-media-debug
Run 'brasero --help' to see a full list of available command line options.' just for the sake of checking brasero, i'm not going to try jaunty or karmic. if brasero version on 8.10 is known to not work correctly then i would like this bug report closed till further upgrades from ubuntu. thanks for your cooperation.

i have recently switched over from being a prolific windows user to a regular linux user, and ubuntu really left a good impression on me except for this blot (brasero). it is really disappointing and more so because this is the application that is ported with the basic installation of ubuntu......i hate piracy, but i am helpless.
