continuing the search for a good cd burner
xcdroast is the best to date, whilst it is mainly a front end for cdrecord etc , it is an excellent little application with a GNU license. well worth the look.

well it hasnt changed
running mandrake 9 2.4.19-16mdk, out of the box.

downloading this was a waste of time, it allegedly only does test burns, but it wouldnt let me test burn .mp3 z then i couldnt select a data directory to test

about the only thing i could do easily was
rpm -e FireBurner

Not impressed...
People keep telling me this is such a great program, but it doesn't seem to work on my system. Their support forum is virtually useless since they never respond. They claim this software is XP compliant, but one look at thir forum says otherwise -- there are nothing but error messages and complaints from everyone running XP. Some have found fixes, but most seem to be in limbo. Needless to say, I won't be wasting any money on a program that A) doesn't work and B) is not supported by anyone. If I wanted that, I'd download freeware...

FB is okay, but some things I don't like:
- No "Erase CDRW" function. I use CDRWs a lot (not packet writing, just regular tao/dao) for things I only need temporarily. This is highly inconvenient and repels me from the program.

- Options not easily available from a single window like CDRWin

- "Are you sure you want to exit Fireburner?" Annoying.

You wanna do anything with bin/cue? Try these then: cdrdao and bchunk.

iso's
How do I create an iso using fireburner? I was told that this was possible and this is why I downloaded this software

Don't like it.
The software is ok with me, my problem is around
licensing. If I didn't buy Windows - because I
didn't - I won't buy this either.
The only feature this software is valuable for me
is that it can do anything with bin/cue. I think I
have to wait for a little while and someone will
release something with this function under GNU/GPL.

I don't buy software for personal use.
