K3b[edit | edit source]

The third burning application I'd like to introduce is K3b.
It's a part of KDE environment and it's probably the best burning software for Linux.
What you can do with K3b:
1. Burn dates.
2. Make multisession project (burn more datas for the last open session).
3. Burn audio CD.
4. Burn mixed project such as: dates, audio, video, etc.
5. Burn video CD (VCD) or video DVD.
6. eMovix (it creates mini Linux distribution witch can open any video file using MPlayer,
but it has to be eMovix installed too).
7. Copy CD and DVD (cloning included).
8. Erease multi-session CD/DVD.
9. Burn file images.
10. Copy audio CD, video CD and video DVD.
