How To Burn An ISO File With Brasero Tool

Every ubuntu user is familiar with the Brasero Disc Burner tool for the reason that it comes as a default application in Ubuntu Linux. Brasero is a free disc-burning program licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License. The good thing about this software is that it supports both CD and DVD formats. Brasero supports single-session data DVDs and any type of CD and can use all audio files handled by Gstreamer local installation (ogg, flac, mp3, …).

You can read more about Brasero in our article about CD And DVD Burning Tools For Ubuntu.

What tools do you need?

You need the Brasero Disc Burner tool, the iso file (an image of a CD, DVD, or BluRay disc) and a disc or a dvd where you want to burn your data. CDs are typically 700MB to 1.4GB, DVDs 4.7GB to 9.4GB, and BluRay Discs 25GB to 50GB. Also make sure your computer is able to write CDs and DVDs.
