Description Tiago Cruz 2006-11-14 00:01:09 UTC
Please describe the problem:
Hello guys,
I know that is one limitation of FAT partitions, but how I don't have free space on others partitios, I really need to use this.

The limitation is exactly 4 GB, and the nautilus dead during copy, without show any message/warning after of before sayng why.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Get one DVD >= 4.0 GB
2. Make one image on one FAT partition
3. Wait some minutes

Actual results:
The file is created with 4.0 GB and the nautilus-cd-burner 2.14.3 dead.

Expected results:
I expect that nautilus make the division of file before burn, like windows program do. Ex: If the DVD have 4.3 GB, the nero, for example, divide the images on 02 files with 2 GB and one with 300 MB, and after, burn all images without problems.

Or some warning message around problem ;)

Does this happen every time?
Yes, if the image have more then 4 GB.

Other information:
I'm using debian unstable/ ubuntu dapper with this problem.

One little workaround can be done using some like this:

cat /home/tiago/mandriva-powerpack-2007-DVD.i586.iso | split -b 2500m - mdv2006
cat mdv2006aa mdv2006ab | growisofs -dvd-compat -speed=2 -Z /dev/dvd=/dev/stdin

This works very well :)
But I don't know C language, sorry...

nautilus-cd-burner has been replaced by Brasero in the GNOME 2.26 release. If your bug still applies to Brasero, please feel free to re-open the bug, and reassign it to brasero itself.
