Package: nautilus-cd-burner
Version: 2.14.2-1
Severity: wishlist


This bugreport comes from an observation of a beginning Linux user.

It'd be useful if nautilus-cd-burner provided an option to erase/blank
CD-RW and DVD-RW media. Currently you can not _just_ blank them, you
need to select another (in my case ISO image, but presumably you can
use the CD/DVD creator) disc to overwrite the existing one.

The option should, obviously, provide some kind of confirmation dialog
(defaulting to 'No'). This would assist beginning Linux users who may
not find 'cdrecord dev=/dev/cdrom blank=fast' as inituitative as I
