All those graphical programs are just front-ends for - cdrecord (CDs) - growisofs (fro DVDs, from the dvd+rw-tools package) So try and get those to work from the command-line first. Then install k3b or baker or whatever. My usual invocation for cdrecord for data disks is: cdrecord -v -eject -dao speed=8 driveropts=burnfree dev=1,1,0 -pad \ -data file.iso You'll have to adjust the dev part by looking at the output of 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Cdrecord requires atapicam or a SCSI burner, btw. For burning music, use -audio instead of -data, and feed it a bunch of WAV files. See cdrecord(1). The growisofs(1m) manual has examples on how to use it.
