cdrecord failing to write
Nautilus has been barfing when I try to write a CD from the CD/DVD
creator. There is no output from the cdrecord command when I click to
display the results.
I've tried to run cdrecord from the command line as both my user and
root, but get the same result.
Output of "cdrecord -scanbus":
