Comment 34 for bug 283316

i can confirm this issue exists, brasero is currently (for me at least) impossible due to the speed at which the tray opens and closes itself

i made a one-line fix to /etc/udev/rules.d/60-persistent-storage.rules that seemed to solve the problem without even rebooting the machine, it was mentioned in another thread...look for the following in said file:

# skip unpartitioned removable media devices from drivers which do not send "change" events
ENV{DEVTYPE}=="disk", KERNEL!="sd*|sr*", ATTR{removable}=="1", GOTO="persistent_storage_end"

just beneath the second line, add the following (make sure to back up your original):

ENV{DEVTYPE}=="disk", KERNEL=="sd*|sr*", ATTR{removable}=="1", GOTO="persistent_storage_end"

(the subtle difference is in the "KERNEL" portion)

i'll attach my "version" of the file in case anyone would like to try it themselves as a temporary workaround:
