    Unhappy Problem burning iso CD with Nautilus

    I have downloaded the iso for Ubuntu 8.04 with a view to doing a complete install but I cannot get Nautilus to burn the CD.

    The help page from Ubuntu Home site advises to set the write speed as low as possible and the error message I get when attempting to burn the CD also advises trying a lower write speed.

    However, the 'write speed' box is greyed out and I cannot find any way of editing the settings. Can anyone help me in this?

    Many thanks in anticipation,

    Panorack

    Thanks for the tip. Installed K3b and it looks more promising but still failed with the following error message:

    System
    -----------------------
    K3b Version: 1.0.3

    cdrecord
    -----------------------
    /usr/bin/wodim: Operation not permitted. Warning: Cannot raise RLIMIT_MEMLOCK limits.
    scsidev: '/dev/hdd'
    devname: '/dev/hdd'
    scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
    Linux sg driver version: 3.5.27
    Wodim version: 1.1.6
    SCSI buffer size: 64512
    /usr/bin/wodim: Sorry, no CD/DVD-Recorder or unsupported CD/DVD-Recorder found on this target.

    It was the last line that got me. Any ideas what is wrong?
