Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

Sorry, couldn't find any better package to report this against.

1) Insert a blank CD-R and open with CD/DVD Creator as suggested
2) Drag an ISO to the CD
3) Dialog appears asking
Do you want to create a disc from the contents of the image or with the image file inside?
blah blah
Options: 'Burn as File' or 'Burn contents'

I have no idea which means which, and the rest of my family sure as hell wouldn't
Options should be:
'Burn as data' and 'Burn as image' or something like that?

Should be with nautilus-cd-burner rather than brasero, no?
