using cd creator getting error


hello!
(i am not good with computers heads up)i am trying to burn a cd using the cd/dvd creator on linux, but everytime i go to write disk, an error pops up sayingL FILE IMAGE CREATION FAILED: The selected location does not have enough space to store the disc image (xx MiB needed)
ive tryed looking for info on the internet about this, but everyone has suggestions involving the command line (very new to me, not even sure what it is!) which when i enter a command it never works
SO, if anyone can help me figure the cd burning out (in simple terms!) or let me know of a download that will burn cds with linux
thanks!

Hi and welcome to LQ!

You have to change the directory used for the temporary ISO images. For the nautilus CD/DVD creator, you can do that using gconf-editor and changing the value of /apps/nautilus-cd-burner/temp_iso_dir (by default it is blank, which means that it uses the default system directory, maybe /tmp). Otherwise, you can try k3b, which let you do a lot of configurations before burning a CD.
