Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

When using the 1:1 disc copy utility, I insert the DVD from which I want to create a backup ISO.

The Image burning setup dialog box contains the following:

Select a disc image to write
"file_name.iso": 7.8 GB

Select a disc to write to
"Blank DVD-ROM Disc: not enough free space"

Please choose another CD or DVD or insert a new one
The data size is too large for the disc
even with the overburn option.

When last I checked, a blank DVD-ROM Disc held 8+ GB of information. Is this a failing of Brasero?

Note that you can actually record using wodim/cdrecord; it's just that Brasero (and Nautilus' built-in CD burning dialogs) say the CD has "not enough free space". I'm getting this on a Thinkpad T60 trying to record a blank (fresly unwrapped) CD-RW.
