I prefer to always burn data discs with DAO setting to get a reliable burn & wide-compatibility across players.

I can find no DAO setting option in Brasero. What setting is Brasero using to burn data DVDs? And can it be set to burn using DAO (Disc at Once)?

I personally use k3b since I find this a more reliable burner.

For Brasero, I think you need to burn your files to an ISO first.

Then from the terminal you can burn to DVD via a command:

cdrecord --dao myisofilename.iso
