Brasero Burner On Ubuntu
Desktop Training - Ubuntu 8.04

Many burning applications can give you a huge selection of features but few are as simple and effective for what I do than the Brasero Burner. I'm into Ubuntu and was very happy to see Brasero included with the new Ubuntu because of its simplicity and useful features. Brasero will replace the Serpentine burner on the new Ubuntu.


Brasero now supports multisession, joilet extension, can write an image to a hard drive, and check disc file integrity for data CDs and DVDs. Features for burning audio CDs include write CD-TEXT information, on-the-fly burning, use all audio files handled by Gstreamer local installation (ogg, flac, mp3, ...), and search for audio files inside dropped folders. Using the Brasero burner CD/DVD copy option you can copy a CD/DVD to the hard drive, copy CD and DVD on the fly, use single-session data DVD, and really supports any type of CD. Other features you'll want to take note of are erase CD/DVD feature, save/load projects, burn CD/DVD images and cue files, song image and video previewer, and device detection, and more.

Here you can see Brasero burner is located under Applications --- Sound & Video --- Brasero Disc Burning on the Ubuntu desktop.
