What I used in this demonstration:
- Ubuntu 11.10 GNU/Linux on my computer
- Some sample tracks of legally obtained MP3 music
- 1 Blank CD-R disc of the 700MB, 80 min (imation 1x-52x is what I have)
- MP3 support in Ubuntu - Terminal command: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
First, insert a blank CDR into the drive. If you get the application launch prompt as shown below, simply click Cancel to close it. See below. Note: We could click through and add the Brasero application as a default to the drop-down shown here but that's another topic.
Next, click the Ubuntu Launcher icon in the Unity menu... or hit the wintard button (that's the one with the wintard logo on it), then type in brasero and click on the Brasero disk burning utility icon to launch it. See below.
Next, Click the "Audio project" button to begin a new music CD compilation. See below.
When you are finished adding music tracks to the compilation, Enter a descriptive name for the CD in the field provided(optional), then click the Burn button. Wait about 5 or ten minutes as the program "normalizes" the tracks and then burns them onto the CD disc.
That's it! Wasn't that easy! Now you can take the CD out to your car (or other standard CD player) and enjoy your music.
