good burner software.


Im using cdrecord-proDVD, i was wondering if there is any other software that is equally good or better? i get errors when using this software, i donīt know if itīs the program itself or my media or my burner.

Anyone have some recommendations of good burning software for DVD ?

You might want to try k3b. I didn't test it myself but it has good reviews and its a serious piece of software.

Maybe you can specify what error you're getting, and then we can try help you with cdrecord (I'm not sure of any alternatives).

Most burner software are front-ends for cdrecord, however, I read somewhere that K3B doesn't use cdrecord-proDVD for burning DVDs, but uses dvd-rw-tools instead. So you might want to check that out. Personally I just use XCDRoast for burning data, but I have my .bashrc set up nicely for burning audio CDs. Doing some things in XCDRoast is just more convinient. btw, does anyone know of a way to burn images (.mdf, .cdi to name the more obscure) under Linux? I've tried just doing cdrecord [all my options] file_name.mdf, but that has never seemed to turn out an actual disc. Do I still need to reboot into Windows for Alcohol 120%?
