I'm pretty much an idiot when it comes to working my Ubuntu/Linux drive...
so I asked on the site about a suitable burner for Ubu,
and installed whatever it was they recommended (couldn't even call its name now!)
Took one look at its decidedly UN-intuitive interface,
couldn't figure out what the hell to do,
and forgot about it, and haven't returned!

Nowadays, when I want to burn something, I fire up the XP drive, and use NERO, which I know and understand.

WHEN will the Linux ppl come around to the reality that 90% of us idiot computer users are NOT geek-types?
We want/demand INTUITIVE, not dorky!

Are you talking about just burning files, mp3s, oggs, etc. to a cd?

If so, just put the blank CD or DVD in the drive, wait for the CD/DVD Creator window that will pop up, drag your files or folders to it, and click the "Write to disc" button.

You don't have to download any apps that you don't find intuitive to do it.

If you are using rewritable media and it already has something on it, you will have to go to Places->CD/DVD creator to pop up the window. It will ask to confirm that you want to erase what is already on it.

If you are wanting to burn an iso image directly, just right click on the image file and select "Write to disc".

The only thing that this facility will not do for you is burn an old fashioned music CD. For that you need to use a different app.

Hope this helps!
