a lot of people like cdrecord -- it's probably the best, in fact (imho).

I am very impressed with K3b, which is I believe part of the next kde release, so you'll have to hunt around for the source, compile it, etc.
Compiled fine in Gentoo, though.

Hmmm ... do you mean "nicest graphical
frontend" or "best cd writing program"? :)

Basically, all X programs are just using
cdrecord (part of Shily's cdwriter-tools)
or cdrdao anyway... k3b looks quite friendly,
but it's a KDE App (memory hog). Personally
I'm using xcdroast if I can't be bothered
to hack my commandline for mkisofs and
cdrecord.

Cheers,
Tink

Currently using xcdroast for the most part and liking it. I have used cdrecord from the commandline an had no problems. Like was said above, just depends on whether you want a nice graphical interface or not.

I'm looking for a quality GUI. I have noticed that a lot of these programs don't burn .mp3 extensions. They are "not supported". So, preferrably, I would like a program that would
Thanks

I find K3b to be a great application for burning CDs. Though I've had no experience with other programs, the actual burning GUI is very informative, some that was lacking when I used to use Nero. K3b for sure.

How come? What error messsages are your getting and what you want to do? A mp3 disk? An Audio disk?.

K3B runs fine for me with mp3's in SuSE 9.1 Pro. Choose File >> New Project >> New Audio CD Project. Then drag 'n drop your mp3's. That's in the case you want to convert your mp3 into a playable audio disk. Otherwise, choose File >> New Project >> New Data CD Project.

k3b is a good gui burner. may need to compile yourself with the appropriate tools installed first to get k3b to copile mp3 support, etc... At the moment I'm hanging for the next version of k3b and dvd tools to work with newer kernels. K3b is fixed in cvs but not sure about dvd tools - but anyway you have ne trouble if you use 2.6.7 kernels for a while til it all sorts out.
