Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

In Lucid, Maverick and Natty , when inserting a blank disk:
- "Open the folder" and "Open with CD/DVD creator" are exactly the same.
- we can not see the remaining free space when adding files, and it is impossible to burn a CD image.

See screenshot.

First, "Open the folder" and "Open with CD/DVD creator" should be merged. (remove one of the 2)

Concerning the rest, we can either improve CD/DVD creator, or propose Brasero in the menu.

If we propose Brasero when inserting a blank disk, I see 2 ways of doing it:

1) when inserting a blank CD, the menu entry proposes :
- Do nothing
- Open the folder (which is same as Open CD/DVD creator)
- Open Brasero (main menu, as in attached screenshot)
- Open with another application

2) when inserting a blank CD, the menu entry proposes :
- Do nothing
- Open the folder (which is same as Open CD/DVD creator)
- Burn data (Open Brasero data project)
- Burn music (Open Brasero music project)
- Burn video (Open Brasero video project)
- Burn an image (Open Brasero image project)
- Copy a disk (Open Brasero disk copy project)
- Open with another application

Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue? Please have a look at http://www.ubuntu.com/download to know how to install that version.Thanks in advance.

You should report this upstream at: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/

Also you should report bugs individually e.g.

Bug 1: The remaining free space when adding files cannot be seen.

Bug 2: Menu options are not convenient

This is still an issue in 12.04. I think a simple solution would be to:

1) Have the "Open folder" option open Nautilus.
2) Add an option to the "Default Application" list for CD/DVD burning and have the "Open with CD/DVD creator" open that application
