Hi
Would like to burn DVDs using Mandrake 10

Only Cds burn

Is there a linux DVD burner?

K3b burns dvd just fine. Do you have the dvd+rw-tools package installed?

Well it has been more than a few years since I used Mandrake but I believe it was in the Mandrake Control Center or something like that where you had a place to select/search for packages to install. You should look around in there or your menus and try to find the software installer.

Just checked my software. I have k3b and k3b-dvd. It seems you need to install the latter. It is probably on your installation disks.

If it was not included in version 10, you can use these sites to help you set up urpmi sources:

http://mandrivauser.de/smarturpmi/
http://easyurpmi.zarb.org/

I'm told that the first monitors updating of mirrors but that is not an issue with your version of the OS.

It may be time to think about installing Mandriva 2007 when it is finally released soon.

Maurice A. you might have misunderstood, it is not a question dvd RW or dvd R
you need to install the dvd+rw-tools package, using easyurpmi to setup your repositories to use plf
repositories (and other), then using drakrpm you should find the package
dvd+rw-tools
