View Full Version : [ubuntu] A program to burn multiple cds.

January 16th, 2009, 04:57 AM
I would like a program where I can pick a lot of music and then click burn and it will just burn a full cd then ask for another cd and so on. Is there a program like this I can get?

K3B. Yes, that is its name, K3B.

I agree - k3b is the way to go. When you run it, you get an option that lets you choose how many copies of the burn you want to make. You can burn as many as you've got CD's to burn them on.

k3b is one of the slickest burning programs around, free or proprietary.

Well, I use k3b for all my burning neeeds but when I try it I get an error "data did not fit on disk". Is there some setting I need to enable or what? I did this in simulation if it matters.

Just to be clear on what I want to do, I want to select like 500 songs then press burn and have it burn like 20 songs then ask for another cd, burn another 20 songs (different from the last cd), ask for another cd, burn 20 more songs, until I burn all 500 songs.

Thanks for the replies.

I honestly don't think one exists for what your trying to accomplish, but keep looking anyway. It's certainly a neat idea.

A quick google only came up with these responses, but alas they are not for linux (as far as i saw).



however, you may want to look into Linux or Open Source backup tools..... There might be a backup tool that has that feature.

Ok, I will keep looking. If anyone finds something let me know.

On Windoze, there is something called 'Burn to the brim'.

To Herman: I forgot to mention that I want the cds to be playable in cd players. BTTB is making iso files with like 100 songs in them. Do you know how to make audio cds the same way as BTTB does for mp3 cds?

itunes does that... wish I could find a decent alternative, I'm not an itunes fan but seem to be stuck with it.

You are referring to disk spanning. I haven't come across anything in Ubuntu that will do that. I don't think wodim even supports disk spanning.

I have a related question. Is there anything like InfraRecorder that supports "projects"? I know I could install it via Wine, but I am looking for something native.
