Use growisofs instead of Brasero November 18, 2012

Brasero frequently fails to burn iso images for me. Often with an error message along the lines of
power calibration area error

If like me you use gnome and don’t want to have to bring in all the KDE libraries to use k3b in these cases the command line utility growisofs seems to work just fine

This is how you would use it to write (and close) a DVD

growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd /path/to/file.iso
