Question Need Linux GUI based DVD burner

Hi, Need a linux gui based DVD burner. I am supposed to backup 10GB every day and so need an application, where if i drag and drop 10 gb of parent folder. then it should prompt for next cd, once 4.7gb of DVD is burnt.is there any way or any script that i can convert to GUI.

Thanks in advance Smilie

10GB every day onto DVDs...sorry to hear that. Smilie I would try to find a diff solution, but if that's what you have to do, you might try "kdar":

I've never used it but it looks like it may be a good starting point for you.

A GUI based solution sounds rather poor for a backup plan as you describe.

Far better to have a script that is able to back up gulps of 4.7Gig rather than you having to guess.

1. Apparently cdrecord can be used to write DVDs.

2. mkisofs can be used for creating the iso image.

3. I suggest using a script that has takes a list of all the files to be backed up, then makes a number of iso images and records them.

I would not trust a GUI based approach if it requires an operator to have dragged a specific folder, far better to automate and error check.
