nautilus-cd-burner thinks my cdrom is my cdwriter


When I try to use nautilus-cd-burner (FC4), it checks my cdrom and then says that there is not enough disk space to burn the file (sounds logical, the cdrom can't burn a byte). Using cdrecorder, I can burn the file directly to the cdwriter, so the device is recognized. I can't find a configuration file for nautilus-cd-burner. How do I let nautilus-cd-burner access the writer?

Second question: how do I burn bootable iso images to cdrom with cdrecord? What are the command line options?

Third question: up2date tries to access a webpage that no longer exists (, but again I can't find the configuration file where that specific address is listed.

I don't have any computer with more than one optical drive, so I can't check this out. But the "write to disk" dialog in Nautilus has a drop down list call "Write Disk to." Your CD-writer is not listed as one of the options in that list? If not, I am wondering if it requires some kind of a symlink (like /dev/cdrom1 or something -- I am guessing here) similar to the /dev/cdrom symlink you probably already have.
