Brasero is a CD and DVD writing ('burning') application. Since Ubuntu 8.04, it has been installed by default.
Applications > Sound & Video > Brasero Disc Burning
The startup screen shows different projects and other tasks you can start. The main ones allow you to burn:
- Data discs
- Audio discs
- Video discs
- Disk 'images' (e.g. Linux distributions)
- Copies of discs
Brasero can erase a rewritable disc so it can be used again: Tools > Erase... There is also a basic cover editor available: Tools > Cover Editor.
