Brasero Install Brasero

It comes default with Ubuntu. Simple interface, but powerfull features.

Some of them:

Data CD/DVD:

  • supports edition of discs contents (remove/move/rename files inside directories)
  • can burn data CD/DVD on the fly
  • automatic filtering for unwanted files (hidden files, broken/recursive symlinks, files not conforming to joliet standard, ...)
  • supports multisession
  • supports joliet extension
  • can write the image to the hard drive
  • can check disc file integrity

Audio CD:

  • write CD-TEXT information (automatically found thanks to gstreamer)
  • supports the edition of CD-TEXT information
  • can burn audio CD on the fly
  • can use all audio files handled by Gstreamer local installation (ogg, flac, mp3, ...)
  • can search for audio files inside dropped folders
  • full edition of silences between tracks

CD/DVD copy:

  • can copy a CD/DVD to the hard drive
  • can copy CD and DVD on the fly
  • supports single-session data DVD
  • supports any kind of CD

If it's not already in your system, you can install it easily via Software Center, or, via command line with sudo apt-get install brasero.

Turns out it was already installed on my Ubuntu 14.04 – George Rappel Apr 18 at 23:51

K3b is my favorite burning application for Linux. K3b's interface would be very familiar to someone with a background in Nero on Windows. I heartily recommend K3b. Click here to install or run the following:

sudo apt-get install k3b

I have had trouble with Brasero making coasters in the past, and its minimal approach to output prevented me from discerning why.

I also vote for k3b. Never looked back to Brasero after using it. – lovinglinux Oct 25 '10 at 22:45

Default Ubuntu's CD Burning Brasero can utilize that,. it is integrating in nautilus to. try to copy paste your music collection into your mounted blank CD / DVD. and then burn it on nautilus extra menu.

k3b is KDE based, but probably the best CD burning software I've seen to date on linux. Also.. if you really want Nero, they do have/had a linux version.

Wow , i didn know that Nero has an alternative for Linux too , i thought its only for windows . Thanks ! – Wilsonzaizai Oct 15 '10 at 17:26
I am using it, actually. It's what I would call a scaled-down version, but it works fine so far. – jfmessier Oct 15 '10 at 17:51

Just do it the Ubuntu way: just drag and drop your playlist (or your audio files) to the empty CD and burn. Done. Never been easier :-)

Oh , using Ryhthmbox or Banshe ?? – Wilsonzaizai Oct 15 '10 at 16:12
does not really matter. Try guayadeque or exaile. – Takkat Oct 15 '10 at 16:18
If he's happy with Rhythmbox/Banshee, no reason to recommend that he switch :) – Matthew Pirocchi Oct 15 '10 at 16:24
Ok , ill try the media player and see how it works ^^ Thanks For all the response – Wilsonzaizai Oct 15 '10 at 17:25

For mp3 just about everything would work as previous answers prove. But for DVD or Blue-ray the issue is more complicated than just pointing out to K3b and brasero just because there's not much else out there. ImgBurn in Wine is better than anything in Ubuntu. Nero 4 (Nerolinux) is another choice.
