Thanks for your bug report. In 0.4.3-4 we added a patch to port xfburn
from hal+thunar-vfs to udev+gio. I haven't tested with my external usb
burner, only an internal one (I'll try to do it later).

Could you check if there's any message from xfburn in .xsession-errors,
and that your burner is correctly detected as such by udev?

e.g. with udevadm info --name=/dev/sr1 --query=all
