Hi, I was trying to burn CD and DVD under FC18, Gnome3, all latest updates. There I have three burning apps: Brasero, GnomeBaker, xfburn. (!!) Non of these tools is able to burn neither CD and DVD (both RW). Every time the burn process fails.

After switched to Win7 with the same HW setup and CD/DVD disks, everything is going well.

So: Does FC18 supports the CD/DVD burning by default(did anyone check this, was successful)? if so, what is then wrong... what should I install in addition (or exchange) to make Brasero/Gnomebaker useful and be able to do such essential task like CD/DVD burning?

Note: I do not want use K3B. thanks, A.

Does Brasero return any further information other than just failing?

If it doesnt by default, try running it from the command line and see what is returned. Brasero also has some extra debugging flags that you could run it with that might shed some more light on your issue. For example, try running brasero with:

brasero --brasero-media-debug --brasero-burn-debug

Thx ryan_lerch.

Yes, I did some debug, I run:

brasero -g

This gave me start/loading (also plugins) log. Please note, this is a general Fedora18 32bit Gnome installation, so I suspect that everyone should have such issues. So, I see few failures that could break Brasero, there I have:

" [..]
BraseroBurn: (at burn-plugin-manager.c:427) Load failure, no GType was returned "readcd" is a symbolic link pointing to another program
[..]
BraseroBurn: (at burn-plugin-manager.c:427) Load failure, no GType was returned "cdrecord" is a symbolic link pointing to another program
[..]
BraseroBurn: (at burn-plugin-manager.c:427) Load failure, no GType was returned
"mplex" GStreamer plugin could not be found
"avencmp2" GStreamer plugin could not be found
"avenc

"avenc_mpeg2video" GStreamer plugin could not be found
[..]
BraseroBurn: (at burn-plugin-manager.c:427) Load failure, no GType was returned
"dvdauthor" could not be found in the path
[..]
BraseroBurn: (at burn-plugin-manager.c:427) Load failure, no GType was returned
"mkisofs" is a symbolic link pointing to another program
[..]
"

These plugins has been automatically disabled by Brasero. And this probably is the issue. Following plugins failures I identified that e.g. "readcd" is pointing to /usr/bin/readcd -> /etc/alternatives/cdrecord-readcd ; then /etc/alternatives/cdrecord-readcd -> /usr/bin/readom

very similar for next one: /usr/bin/cdrecord -> /etc/alternatives/cdrecord /etc/alternatives/cdrecord -> /usr/bin/wodim

A detailed info about my system: Linux 3.7.6-201.fc18.i686 #1 SMP Mon Feb 4 16:15:01 UTC 2013 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux Brasero 3.6.1

I have to mansion that some Brasero plugins are shaded and these above ones also shaded and plus "unchecked". Could someone confirm same config for FC18? Do you use Brasero, does it work for you? If so, to what binaries pointing your readcd and cdrecord?

Thanks in advance. This is my big stopper for now. Andrzej.
