Description Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2007-10-16 05:27:43 UTC
it seems that for some drives the disc capacity of blank discs can't be properly determined, yielding in a "no empty disc inserted" error in nautilus-cd-burner and brasero for example.

** (brasero:1359): WARNING **: No property volume.disc.capacity on device with id /org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/volume_empty_unknown

There's an Ubuntu bug about this here:

Which includes a patch that seems to work fine:

Would be nice to have this included in hal soonish :)

This is btw with hal on Ubuntu (, i.e. with a bunch of patches. None of those should affect this bug though...
Comment 2 Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2007-10-16 05:52:45 UTC
(Seems to work of course means that it works fine for me)

(Patch is not by me but by David Castelow as can be seen in the Ubuntu bugreport)
