excellent program, tons of features, i would never spend the high amount of money needed to get nero because it cant even do half of what this can do.

In few cases the OS alternative totally bypasses the commercial tool in terms of usability and quality, k3b is one of them, I find it much better than nero.

Best burning tool I ever used!

Works perfectly on FreeBSD, so enable the unix checkmark !

Really excellent program to burn CD's and DVD's!

Sure wish k3b was still working, been broken for a while now, at least in ubuntu/kubuntu. Rarely works but sometimes does. Up until recently I never had ONE coaster, now they all are assuming it gets to actually writing to the drive :-(.

Thought my dvd/cd/rw was dead and got another only to have the same problems (system comes to a standstill and / or hangs with a lot of messages about drive not ready for command (IIRC).

Interestingly enough both drives work fine with nero (ugh) and I am stuck with making up tgz or iso's to transfer over to a wincrap partition so I can burn them with nero. My backup schedule is getting awfully long in the tooth...

google has been no help in that there seems to be much complaints and no solutions :-(.

Someone told me that the entertainment mafias had paid them off to screw it up, I rather doubt that, but it has been going on an awfully long time now with no resolution - unusual for open source stuff in my experience :-(.
