Missing DVD burn speed options (6.2x +)

Bug #133758 reported by Scott Beamer on 2007-08-20
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
hal (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus-cd-burner

When burning a 16x DVD-R no options for setting the burn speed are given beyond 6.2x.

I prefer to burn discs at a high speed but not the highest (to avoid coasters).

Typically I'll burn a 16x disc at 12x.

But the highest speed choices given are 6.2x or "Maximum". And there is no indication as to what "Maximum" truly ends up being.

Thank you for your bug. Could you run /usr/lib/nautilus-cd-burner/list_cddrives and lshal and attach the logs to a comment?

I forgot to mention that if I use Gnomebaker or k3b, I can burn at any speed that the drives are designed to handle. They do just fine with most 16x DVD-/+R media at 16x (although I usually drop it back to 12X as previously stated).

The logs you requested are attached.

Hi, since this bug was reported before the release of the current version of Ubuntu, 7.10 or "Gutsy," could you please tell us if you still experience this issue in Gutsy?
