Bug Description

Not sure if this is a bug, but can't find a link & no one has answered my HELP request in which I said:
I set up a burn, the dialogue whirs round a bit, the CD-RW ejects, the last bit of the burnlog says:

BraseroGenisoimage Launching command
BraseroGenisoimage called brasero_job_get_fd_out
BraseroGenisoimage called brasero_job_get_fd_in
BraseroGenisoimage called brasero_job_get_fd_out
BraseroGenisoimage stderr: /usr/bin/genisoimage: Error: '/media/3CDA-8224/Photos/Photos to print/Margaret%20Tess2.jpg' and '/media/3CDA-8224/Photos/Photos to print/Margaret%20Tess2.jpg' have the same Rock Ridge name 'Margaret%20Tess2.jpg'.
BraseroGenisoimage stderr: Unable to sort directory Football MEK to Oct10/Photos/Photos to print
BraseroGenisoimage called brasero_job_error
BraseroGenisoimage finished with an error
BraseroGenisoimage asked to stop because of an error

 message = "An image could not be created"
BraseroGenisoimage stopping
BraseroGenisoimage got killed
Session error : An image could not be created (brasero_burn_record brasero-burn.c:2839)

What am I supposed to do? [if its relevant I think there will be lots of duplicated filenames]

I notice this is still unanswered. I still think its a bug - a lot of fiddling about seems to indicate that Brasero refuses to burn filenames which include "%20". This may be a superficial conclusion & I can't be bothered to see if its the inclusion of any "%" character that causes the crash, but it would seem logical.
A temporary fix might be for the program to do a preliminary search for any filenames it doesn't like and report them in a format where the file can be removed or the name changed.

Had same problem burning a DVD with Brasero from files downloaded from a Picasa Web Ablum (which seems to like filenames containg '%').

The only solution was to rename the files before burning.

Seems like Brasero does not like file names containing '%'.

Thank you for your bug report, what version of Ubuntu do you use?

Pedro could you check if that's still an issue in Oneiric and upstream the bug if that's one?
