Confusing disk space when burning CD image

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

The dialog that shows up when burning an ISO image to a disk displays the space left on the blank disk I just inserted, but it is written in a way that makes it seem as though the disk has almost no space left currently and made me swap it out several times before I realized it was the disk left AFTER the ISO is burned. See example:

This should be changed to say "27.8 MB free space after burn" or something to prevent confusion.

I should mention the disk in the screenshot has 700 MB of free space, not 27.8. The 27.8 is how much there will be after the burn!
