I've been using Mint as my primary OS for a few weeks now and am very pleased. Surprisingly though, unlike a great many distros, there's no CD/DVD burning software included by default (something to consider for Cassandra?)
I have an old Sony DVD/CD-R/RW and a Samsung DVD+-R/RW dual layer drive.
I rip most of my DVDs (strip out copyright warnings and preserve the precious original discs) so some DVD backup software will probably be required. I like to control as many aspects as possible and am indifferent to unfriendly interfaces.
I wonder if anyone had any recommendations of programs that they used?
I seldom use DVDs .I never used one to record anything.I have a DVD burner I took out of a late model E Machine and have K3B on this Linux to burn CD ISOs.So I ask exactly which DVD blanks to buy? I think there are versions of them.I am downloading the DVD ISO now.
