[SOLVED] Brasero + ISO support

Hi.

In my LMDE box, I'm trying to create an ISO image from a CD using brasero, but brasero only shows the options to create cue or cdrdao options. What can I do or install to let brasero create iso images?

Thanks in advance

I never use Brasero. I've heard too many stories of it making coasters. I have never had a bad burn using K3b. The only caveat is to install it using the Mint Software Manager, not the Package Manager. The Package Manager seems to bring in half the KDE desktop just to install K3b. Software Manager just installs the dependencies that are needed to run K3b.

Don't know if this will help you, but this member found a solution by installing brasero-cdrkit

Are you sure that your hardware (cd/dvd burner) is okay? I used brasero today to burn a dvd iso image without any probs. But brasero indeed has probs to copy audio cds. Imo there is no need to install k3b. Try gnomebaker.

brasero-cdrkit was the solution, I'm hugely happy :)

Thanks a lot! I really appreciate your replies!

Is that true for other applications as well? I always thought that Mint Software Manager was nothing more than Package Manager presenting the applications in a custom sorted format.

I too have other KDE apps running with M9. No telling how much unneeded stuff came with it.

I would also like to know if this is true.

Hi, I have the same problem and installed brasero-cdrkit but it still doesn't show ISO when I'm trying to make a copy of an audio CD

Try Xfburn. I highly recommend it. :)

Yeah, Brasero seems to be a bit buggy in general. I remember wanting to burn a Lubuntu image with a size of 698 MiB on a regular 700MiB CD a couple of months ago but it wouldn't let me do that and gave me an error and aborted the burning process halfway through rendering the disk useless. Then I tried K3b and it worked flawlessly. I think Brasero is confusing MiB and MB since smaller images or files (<650MiB) were no problem, only the bigger ones. Very strange indeed.
