Brasero worked fine for me, burning to DVD-R, but it wrecked my first attempt to burn a DVD-RW. So I looked around for another burner, and found the Nautilus CD/DVD creator. Works like a charm. (Listed under synaptics as "nautilus-cd-burner".) Obviously, you also need the nautilus file manager installed...don't know if Mint has that by default, I've yet to install that distro, but will do so tonight. I presently have eeebuntu-3.01 running on my 1000HA netbook.
