K3b is a CD and DVD burning application for Linux systems optimized for KDE. It provides a comfortable user interface to perform most CD/DVD burning tasks like creating an Audio CD from a set of audio files or copying a CD. While the experienced user can take influence in all steps of the burning process the beginner may find comfort in the automatic settings and the reasonable K3b defaults which allow a quick start. The actual burning in K3b is done by the command line utilities cdrecord, cdrdao, and growisofs.

K3b was created to be a feature-rich and easy to handle CD burning application. It consists of basicly three parts:
    1. The projects:
    Projects are created from the file menu and then filled with data to burn.
    2.The Tools:
    The tools menu offers different tools like CD copy or DVD formatting.
    3.Context sensitive media actions:
    When clicking on the Icon representing a CD/DVD drive K3b will present it's contents and allow some further action. This is for example the way to rip audio CDs.
