Brasero

Brasero

Brasero is an application to burn CD/DVD for the Gnome Desktop.

It is designed to be as simple as possible and has some unique features to enable users to create their discs easily and quickly.

It supports multiple backends: cdrtools, growisofs and libburn (optional). This maximizes hardware compatibility with a large range of different writing devices.

Brasero has replaced the Serpentine audio CD burning utility as the standard burning tool in the latest release of Ubuntu.
