linux default iconK3b Publisher's description

A CD and DVD burning application for KDE

K3b was created to be a feature-rich and easy to handle CD burning application. It consists of basicly three parts:

. The projects:
Projects are created from the file menu and then filled with data to burn.
. The Tools:
The tools menu offers different tools like CD copy or DVD formatting.
. Context sensitive media actions:
When clicking on the Icon representing a CD/DVD drive K3b will present it's contents and allow some further action. This is for example the way to rip audio CDs.

The features are presented in no particular order and the list might be incomplete...

. Creating data cds:
* Add files and folders to your data cd project via drag'n'drop.
* Remove files from your project, move files within your project.
* Create empty direcories within your project.
* Write data cds on-the-fly directly without an image file or with image file. It's also possible to just create the image file and write it to cd later.
* Rockridge and Joliet support.
* Rename files in your project.
* Let K3b rename all the mp3/ogg files you add to your project to a common format like "artist - title.mp3".
