Brasero issue on Ubuntu 10.10

February 16, 2011 Leave a comment

Brasero is the default CD/DVD burning software that comes bundled with Ubuntu 10.10.

When I first tried to make a copy of a DVD through Brasero, it kept displaying “copying data” forever… After a bit of searching and experimentation, I found that the problem was related to the command through which Brasero is started…

The default command that is executed when you click for the link to start Brasero (Applications -> Sound & Video -> Brasero Disc Burner) is :

brasero %U

When I started brasero using the command without %U, it worked like a charm for me..

So the 2 ways to run brasero are :

Option 1

  1. Open terminal
  2. type the command : brasero
  3. hit enter
  4. use it !

Option 2

This option is to modify the command that gets executed when clicking on the Brasero link under Applications menu.

In order to accomplish this

  1. Right-click on Application menu
  2. In the menu that thus appears, click on “Edit menus
  3. Click on “Sound & Video
  4. In the list that appears on the right, select “Brasero Disc Burner
  5. Then click on the “Properties” button
  6. Change the “command” from “brasero %U” to only “brasero
  7. Click “close

Hope this helps you..
