Re: CD burning in gnome

I've done cd -> cd burning on a p75, so I dont think thats the problem.
Alot of problems burning come from doing other stuff while burning cd's.
I've always left the computer completely alone while burning so that I
dont waste as many blanks.

A warning message while burning might be a good idea.
