CD/DVD CREATOR - nautilus - unhandled error

hi guys,

i am getting this error when trying to burn a dvd with some directories:

There was an error writing to the disc:
Unhandled error, aborting
i think it could be some file names, but i dont know which ones and which the encoding must be.

i tried a conmv command in order to be sure about file names encoding, but it looks fine:

convmv -f iso-8859-7 -t utf8 * -r
Your Perl version has fleas #37757 #49830 
Starting a dry run without changes...
No changes to your files done. Use --notest to finally rename the files.
what does mind "unhandled error" ... is there somewhere a log?
how can i check encodings?
where can i check the cd/dvd configuration?
any aideas ?

i have fedora9, nautilus 2.22.3

thanks in advance,

You may have hit a Perl bug. Here is a description of two relevant Perl bugs:

What versions of Perl and convmv are you using?

hi jailbait,

thanks for answer,

perl -version

This is perl, v5.10.0 built for i386-linux-thread-multi

Copyright 1987-2007, Larry Wall

convmv 1.12 - converts filenames from one encoding to another
Copyright (C) 2003-2008 Bjoern JACKE <>

i wonder if it is something related to the DVD- and DVD+ types,
taking a look at the device manager i got this compatibility:

media compatibility:

model: DVDRW SHW-160P6S

vendor: LITE-ON
firmware version: PS0A

xcdroast says:

Device seems to be: Generic mmc2 DVD-R/DVD-RW.
which means it recognizes my unit as a DVD minus; however it is a DVDplus, so i cant burn my DVD+ media :-(
