Ubuntu comes with a defaultly installed cd/dvd burning software Brasero Disc Burner.Many of us are using this dvd burner software but they are not satisfied and happy with this application.Even i was using previously this software, when i was a new user of Ubuntu and i got frustrated while using this.Some times it works fine but then mostly it does not work properly.When i use Brasero for burning dvd it corrupt the dvd(loss of money). After burning dvd it show error but when i use other softwares it shows ok with that dvd.
So i left using Brasero for burning cd or dvd.Actually one of the good thing about Ubuntu is that, it provides us good software through Ubuntu Software Center.So if you feel that any software goes wrong or not good, you can choose variety of different softwares which can do your work.So in this post i will tell you about some of the best and alternative burner software for Ubuntu 11.04 and 10.10.
