I've never had a problem with Brasero.
Ok, it sometimes gives an error message on completion about ejection not possible or some-such but it's burnt the disk correctly and you don't have to do a Masonic handshake to get normalise to work, unlike K3B.
Don't get me wrong, K3B IS awesome it's just they buggered up normalise.
Why do I need normalise in this day & age ?
Well, our trucks still use standard cd players (no mp3), How quaint !!
So I have to burn eleventy million cd's to play in my truck.
Off topic but has anyone noticed how easily home built cd discs knacker these days ? I keep mine in a proper cd spindle but they still scratch ?
