I'm looking for some CD burning software that's like CDBurner XP or Nero.

  • I like how they both show how many bytes are remaining when I burn a data DVD.
  • Additionally, CDBurner XP can refresh a directory if I delete or add something under the main folder; this makes it very useful to plan the real filesystem.
  • CDBurner XP can also compare the DVD to the files and log any which are different.

Any suggestions?

K3B should do what you need, and it's free. It shows the % remaining, and has more features than most Windows CD burning software.

+1 - k3b is such an awesome program . I just wish I didn't have to bring in half of KDE with it when I install it. Great application. – boehj Jun 15 '11 at 7:16
One thing I don't found in k3b is "Auto Title". That was very good function in Windows softwares. – durumdara Jun 20 '11 at 11:47

I would also recommend K3B. If you have Gnome, you can also use Brasero: enter image description here

Brasero is good, but it cannot show the remaining space. – durumdara Jun 20 '11 at 11:48

Nero is available for Linux:
