hi. i am using ubuntu 12.04 on hp pavilion laptop with this optical unit:: scsi 3:0:0:0: CD-ROM Optiarc DVD RW AD-7581A BH05 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5 cdrom: Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20 sr 3:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0. brasero manages very well cds, but doesn't burn correctly dvds (it is like it enters in an infinite cycle; stopping it, it gives error messages, cannot closing disk or eject it) and doesn't recognize double face dvds (recognized as single face). I installed k3b and everything worked well.
