Bug Description

Feisty 7.04
PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-111D
HL-DT-STDVD-ROM GDR8164B

My father uses his computer mostly for copying DVDs that he creates from his archive of (not copyright protected) movies, mostly home movies shot by himself. He likes to copy these DVDs and give them to various family members and also for backup purposes. Usually what he does is pop in a blank dvd into the Pioneer RW drive and Pop in the master copy into to HL-DT drive, right click the "DVD Video Recording" icon on the desktop, go to "Copy Disk", and away he goes.

This is extremely simple, which is just fine. However, Just now when he tries to copy a DVD, it gives him the following error:

File image creation failed
The selected location does not have enough space to store the disc image (4332 MiB needed).

This seems very odd if the dvd is copying on-the-fly. If it's first ripping the image to a temporary directory, it is possible that, since he does so many, a LOT of space is taken up. However I don't know exactly where the dvd images would be stored with whatever the name of the program he's using to copy the disks.

Thank you for your bug report. Could you run gconf-editor, go to applications, nautilus-cd-burner and enable the debug option there, then run nautilus-cd-burner on a command line to burn the image and copy the log to the bug?

Thanks. Sorry about that. I'm no longer working with the machine that had
the same hardware configuration.
