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

 K3b won't burn CDs

 
 by Shadowman on: Sep 19 2004
 
Score 50%

I have used K3b for a long time. It is amazingly good. Never had any problems. I have reinstalled my Fedora 2 and now I have a problem with K3b. You can see what the problem is here:

http://www2.uic.edu/~fskrgi1/k3b/k3b1.png
http://www2.uic.edu/~fskrgi1/k3b/k3b2.png

It does not recognize that my CD burner and the DVD burner can write CDs. Also, it reports that the DVD burner cannot burn DVDs. Both worked perfectly under Fedora 2 before reinstallation. What could cause this? All the stuff that K3b uses is installed. I don't understand.

I just started having the same problem with K3B thinking my burner can't burn CD's.

It works fine if I run it as root, but not if I run it as any other user.

 What a buggy program

 
 by andy1970 on: Sep 19 2004
 
Score 50%

I'm using Linux for quite a long time, and still it's missing a good reliable CD-/DVD-burning program. K3B itself is very buggy; e.g. when trying to burn a large file on DVD, it crashes. When trying to simply copy a DVD, it eats up all the memory and swap memory when turning off "on-the-fly copy", so after a while the system crashes. Seems, the CD part is going to work now, but still the DVD part is under construction, so I'm switching to Nero, which is working perfectly, though they put to much functionality into it. Hoping, Linux will get a good burning application one day...

No, no, I switch to Windows for some multimedia applications including burning DVD's. I'd like to completely get rid of Windows, but as Linux (still) lacks some multimedia features, I did not erase my Windows partition :-/

May I suggest that it may be either your hardware or OS setup. I've been using k3b for quite some time now with very little problems. It's safe to assume that there will be some bugs as developement goes along. However I've found k3b to be the best frontend available, period. I back up my entire system to DVD on a weekly bases and to CD on a daily bases without crashing or eating up memory. I would look carefully at your hardware.

Good luck,

Hi,

I don't believe it's a hardware problem. I have a standard board MSI, AMD Athlon XP, Infineon DDR-RAM (checked!) and SuSE 9.1 with the newest kernel and all security updates, and a standard ATI graphics card (Rage 128). Also, Pioneer DVD-ROM and DVD-Writer are of good proven and stable quality, and don't cause trouble with windows 2000. So, why should there be a hardware problem? The memory problem only occurs, when using k3b as root, not as a "normal" user. So it truly is a software bug, maybe within k3b, maybe within (SuSE) Linux.

Andreas

I've written a script to back up certain system files, so it is convenient to use k3b as root. Anyway, the program must work with root rigths as well as with user rights.

BTW, I found out that this error also arises when I use k3b as a standard user (andreas-user).

Again my statement is: "A buggy program", at least in this version I use.

Man, this is cryptic. Presumably you want to burn in linux to back up system files, I get that bit. Please elaborate how you do so from Windows with nero.

I have never had one cd burn fail for me with k3b. never. I don't burn cds everyday, about ~50 every 6 months. I have never one fail since i started using k3b.

I have even donated $$ to the k3b project. :) I am happy.

 bugs - Slackware 10

Hi, you my friend have a lot of "TODO" with this program - it is so buggy that i refuse to use it any more. I've compiled K3B, sometime starts sometime does not start. If you want to change something, coredumps.
It is a simple interface to cdburn program - so then why does crash? - I guess you have to rewrite the most part of this program - eventually seek help for future development.
Happy programming -- until then i advice anyone who want to burn cd's to use something else - this interface is not ready yet.

well, I guess you have done something wrong while compiling, I never had many serious issues with k3b, even while I was running mandrake cooker (and believe me, thats unstable...).

and nowadays it always works perfect. as you can see, 0.11.20 is very stable - more crashes would get fixed if it wasn't.

maybe you used strange compilerswitches, or tried to optimize it too much? (eg -O3?)

That so? I have compile many versions of K3B many times from source and never had it crash. That includes compiling KDE3 from source as well. There have been versions not perfect in all circumstances, sure. But AFAIK not as serious as you claim.

A WAG suggests you are compiling with to great of optimizations, or your kde environment is not quite right, to name a few off the top of my head.

Have you people ever thought that it might be hardware problems? or maybe even old libraries? Im using this on 4 different machines, all have different hardware and distros, and guess what, it works.

(Its often the user behind the screen that are to blame)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
