Description Rodd Clarkson 2005-05-26 01:49:05 UTC
Description of problem:

When I insert a blank DVD+R disk into my DVD+/-R burner, it shows up on the
desktop as an icon labeled 'CD-ROM Disc'.

The CD/DVD Creator window still appears.

I'm sure that in the past this icon was labelled something more appropriate but
can't recall what.

This might be useful information:

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?


Comment 2 Rodd Clarkson 2007-02-26 23:17:08 UTC
I'm happy to report that putting media onto my DVD+-RW burner now reports the
media as what it is.  Insert a DVD+R and it shows up as that.  Insert a CD-R and
it shows up as that.
