Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at if you are uncertain if they are bugs.

This is not a brasero issue... is some nautilus dir open app association issue.

On a work area with any app open press alt+f2 and type


then press enter.

select a directory then right click with mouse and change the "open with..." association

As I mentioned in the bug I originally posted "the bug is there's no way to return to Nautilus functionality instead of brasero. I might understand if you want to change this to be a bug to some other part of Ubuntu." So there is a bug in Ubuntu 10.10 that caused the "open with ..." association to change for Places, Home and Desktop.

Thank you for your suggested solution, Marco, all is better now!
