Description:

K3b is a full-featured CD/DVD/Blu-Ray burning and ripping application.
It supports a variety of project types as well as copying of optical media, burning if different types of images, and ripping Audio CDs, Video CDs, and Video DVDs.
Its convenient user interface is targetted at all audiences, trying to be as simple as possible for novice users while also providing all features and advanced user might need.




Changelog:

K3b 2.0 marks the last milestone in the effort to port one of the most popular disk recording applications to KDE's current Platform 4. Although some parts still use legacy libraries, the application takes advantage of the new platform and integrates better with it. Solid, the KDE hardware layer, is now used for hardware detection.

On the interface front K3b 2.0 is a direct port of its KDE3 predecessor. The overall look remains the same but it now uses modern widgets. For example, file browser shows a list of KDE's global Places and takes advantage of the breadcrumb bar. The icons have also been updated to match the rest of the Oxygen theme.

With a few exceptions, K3b keeps feature-parity with 1.0.x series, but it also introduces a number of new features. Perhaps the biggest among these is support for Blu-ray drives. Additionally a lot of work have been put into improving the overall user experience. Some work-flows have been merged abstracting it for all kinds of media.

The K3b team has worked hard to achieve maximum stability of the application, with over 250 bugs being closed during the pre-release period. This process will continue as bug-fixing versions will be released during development of K3b 2.1.

Changes since 1.0.5
* Port to KDE Platform 4
* Always allow manual writing speed selection
* Use proper toolbars instead of the toolboxes -> nicer laying out with different styles
* Merged CD and DVD copy dialogs
* Merged CD and DVD image burning dialogs
* Merged CD-RW erasing and DVD formatting dialogs
* Merged Data CD and Data DVD projects into one plain data project with Blu-ray support
* Merged eMovix CD and eMovix DVD projects
* Removed CD copy option "prefer CD-Text". K3b will now ask individually (there is no need to do this if no mounting is involved)
* Allow importing of arbitrary sessions into a data project, thus continuing other than the last session
* "Clear project" now only clears the added data but leaves the settings as they were (bug 147838)
* Added support for files bigger than 4GB via mkisofs 2.01.01a32 and above
* Do only reload the medium for verification if necessary (depends on the writer)
* Support for Blu-ray writing
* Support for DVD and Blu-ray writing via cdrecord
* New audio ripping pattern %e which is replaced by the file extension
* Better support for RTL languages

 could not find file

It can be used only for ISO burnings on Debian. The "evergreen" problem is also present in the case of k3b 0.12.12.

it can be used for everything, just data project verification fails on some systems even if the cd/dvd is perfectly ok.

In some cases not just data project verification fails. There are broken sessions/files if:

1. you burn DVD with several thousands of small files using the max speed in DAO mode, and the buffer size is the default;
2. you continue a multisession CD (in some cases, there are broken files);
3. you use a CD writer demand a special cdrwtools/cdrecord switch (not supported by k3b).

So the data verification could be very important. Burning optimisation is not possible without this function.

I have problems with the default settings, and the meaning of the "auto" options. (What does the "auto" means, eg. continue a multisession disk, or continue and close? How can I find out its meaning?)

The version 0.12.13 does not compiles with gcc4 on Debian. Only gcc3.4 can be used.

 Possible bug?

See this:
Track 01: 0 of 477 MB written.
Track 01: 1 of 477 MB written (fifo 81%) [buf 100%] 142.9x.
Track 01: 2 of 477 MB written (fifo 100%) [buf 100%] 0.7x.
Track 01: 3 of 477 MB written (fifo 100%) [buf 100%] 17.0x.
...

I've tried with versions from 0.12.10 to 0.12.13
All the same :/
I'm using cdrecord 2.1.1a06
Slackware Current /kernel 2.6.15.3/
My DVD is NEC. I am usually burning CD (Note: Not DVDs) on 16x speed.
This happens with a blank CD-R Verbatim when I am using "Create New DataCD"
Always the first 1 MB is written with such a high speed...
The disc seems OK after the burning is finished... But anyway it looks strange :/
Any ideas?

the speed is an estimate based on the data transferred. bogus values are perfectly normal here.

Thanks for the answer! It might be normal... I am asking just because I had a LG CD/RW a week ago on the same PC. And there wasn't such a problem (if it is a problem at all)...
With that LG CD/RW everything was smooth /Same blank CDs - Verbatim; Same kernel and distro/
This DVD/RW /NEC/ is on my PC from yesterday... And this strange thing began to happen :/

Anyway... Thanks for your quick reply ;]

I read somewhere that you plan on including lightscribe surrort in k3b. Is it coming soon? Do know of some other app for Linux doing lightscribe?

 Could not find file

In the case of K3b 0.12.14 still have the "Could not find flle..." problem on Debian systems.

When I choosed the 103 characters Joliet file names but nothing else from the advanced options, the verification failed.
After that continuing the project, I burned a second session. The "Allow lowercase characters in ISO9660 filenames" option was enabled, and the verification worked fine also for the imported previous session. (In this case the previous session also was verified. I think, because the time of the scanning process was too long.)

Verification worked fine without enabling the "Allow lowercase characters in ISO9660 filenames" when I burned files with only ISO 9660 file names.
I think, the verification problem is not an essential bug, but only a "miscommunication" of the burning dialog.

The 0.12.14 version of K3b can only be compiled without FLAC. (The error messages will be presented next time.) So, the version 0.12.12 was better.

I have the following problem with the automatic settings:

I burned a 450 MB session, then I burned a second, 10 MB session using the automatic option. K3b closed the 650 MB disk with more than 100 MB free space. What will happen, if I continue a disk with 300 MB free space, or a DVD with 1 GB free space? I cannot predict the behavior of K3b.

K3b cannot display the free space on the disk, only the summarized file sizes. This means that e.g. 610 Mb can bee seen, but the 650 Mb CD is full.

Does K3b use the same buffer size for burning DVDs and CDs?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
