Fedora, incapable of burning a DVD
You'd think that in 2007 every modern operating system would offer the ability to burn a DVD. Not Fedora. I plug in my USB DVD writer, I insert a blank DVD, a blank DVD icon shows up on the desktop, right click an ISO and select "Write to Disc...". 30 seconds later, I get a failure and a coaster. I try growisofs, but to do that I need to know the device name. I look at dmesg... I can't really tell so I tried /dev/sr1, /dev/scd1, and /dev/dvd. All fail. Fedora fails.
