CD/DVD burning software

Post by bwjpg »

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?

Im sure there is one, not that I've used it yet.
any way a cool one is from kde called k3b. it maybe on mint already or just install it and dependencies.

I use k9copy which allows you the choice of what titles from a dvd to rip to an iso9660 image. I then use k3b to burn the image. No problems, just works.

I run K3b on Mint Bianca, with Beryl. I like K3b, works beautiful. :)

K3b is the best, but for some reason it launches rather slow in Gnome. Its worth the wait 8)

K3b is my choice in gnome or kde. Works great in both desktops.

To burn ISO I use the integrated Gnome feature. To burn data I usually use it as well, or K3B if I want to make something more complex.

Must have missed something, I thought that was just a simple drag and drop, or could you drag and drop an ISO and get it right?

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.

Husse: just right click the ISO file in Gnome and select Burn to Disk... et voila.

Well.I have been doing it the hard way I guess. I always can cut the burn rate down to twelve or sixteen on K3 B. I have not tried the burner Clem says to use.

actually, it's really easy with how Mint is set up.

You put in a blank disc.
when the windoe pops up and asks you what to do, click "ignore"
Right click on the image, and "write to disc"

Very user friendly. :)

If only Konqueor had that feature that Nautilus has. Hopefully it will be implemented in Dolphin in 4.0 :)
