Description Luis Villa 2004-09-11 18:05:27 UTC
I have a GCR-8483B CD-ROM drive, which k3b correctly recognizes is not a burner.
nautilus-cd-burner treats it as a burner; it should default to 'burn to file' in
this case.

This is with HEAD (just before 2.8.0.)

Please attach the output of list_cddrives to this bug.

hwinfo --cdrom (I believe the suse equivalent of list_cddrives?) says:

No, list_cddrives is a test program shipped in the nautilus-cd-burner sources.
Also, could you attach the output of "ldd .libs/ | grep hal"
(from the source dir), and "cat /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/info"?

I'm not linking against hal yet. Maybe when I switch to fc3 :) 
Comment 5 Bastien Nocera 2004-09-12 15:40:46 UTC
I never realised that because my machines all have burners/readers combo drives.
We need to merge the code from bug #152061 to fix the problem.
