i use eroaster (heh, i even got a bug fix in to it. rah rah rah) it does miss a couple of things tho:

copying from non ide-scsi'd cd drives
converting mp3 on the fly

if i need to do them then i ususally use erm.. gcombust i think. that or gtoaster

hey? i thought eroaster does convert mp3 files before burning them to the cd? i thought i saw that happening... unless of course, i am misunderstanding what you mean by "converting mp3 on the fly"...

it does convert them, but before it burns them to the cd, not during, so you need a few hundreds megs of temporary space to decompress them to wavs before it will burn them. The author said that doing it during a burn was unsafe, so wouldn't do it.

ahh well on a fast system you trust (i.e. mine) it's no problem, but i can see that on a slower system it could cause problems, esp as you have to rely on the stabilty of external programs to work properly.

One thing you should remember that all the gui burning tools are is a front end to cdrecord and other command line tools.

yes i know about them being front end tools... just that i liked the eroaster one best because it's a lot more humanly intuitive... or okay, i suppose it's what i'm more used to, it's easier for me to use etc etc

actually come to think of it... isn't everything a front end to stuff that goes on in the command line? (of course this is if we don't delve too deep and say that everything boils down to the electric pulses in going on around the devices... or even further than that)

Yep, next time you start up a web browser hit Ctrl+Alt+F1 and have a look at what goes on while its loading a page.
