Thanks for your report, could you get a brasero log? please run brasero as: brasero --brasero-burn-debug --brasero-media-debug &> brasero-debug.txt ; perform the operation to reproduce the bug and attach that resulting log file to the report, thanks.

the other user told me, his brasero worked, after he burned with simulation. since i burned with simulation once, the error is gone, even if i burn without simulation.

Waiting 2 month after a user takes the time to send a debug log file and just ignoring it is typical here in the Brasero bugs.
Pedro, you did the same on another brasero bug I reported.
No there you ignored the log for 7 month, just to answer that you wonder, if it still exists!?!

If you have no time for brasero, what I can understand, stop answering a user after months and try to find someone who can react in shorter time.

As brasero is not any more supported in Ubuntu I changed to other programs.
