K3b ist ein hochkonfigurierbares graphisches Brennprogramm für optische Medien für Audio-, Video- und Datenprojekte.
K3bs Standard-Willkommensbildschirm


Wenn man ein Brennprogramm wie Nero unter Windows benutzt hat, wird K3b sehr vertraut wirken.

Mit einer einfachen und dennoch leistungsstarken grafischen Schnittstelle bietet K3b verschiedene Möglichkeiten für das Brennen einer CD, DVD oder BD (Blu-ray Disc). Verschiedene Typen von optischen Projekte die unterstützt werden sind unter anderem (aber nicht nur) Audio- und Daten-, Video-Projekte für DVD und VCD, sowie Multi-Session-und Mixed-Modus-Discs. K3b hat auch die Fähigkeit wieder beschreibbaren Medien löschen und kompliziertere Aufgaben wie audiovisuelle Kodierung und Dekodierung durchzuführen.


Wenn man K3b das erste Mal startet, kann es vorkommen, dass K3b darüber informiert, dass keine Treiber für das Schreiben von optischen Medien vorhanden sind, was heißt, dass man keine CDs oder DVDs beschreiben kann. Das ist kein Grund zur Panik, da K3b ein Konfigurationsdialog öffnet, der dabei hilft, die nötigen Programme an's Laufen zu bringen, die man braucht - einschließlich der jeweiligen Benutzergruppe. Man wird hier meistens nicht selber eingreifen müssen, da K3b die richtigen Berechtigungen der externen Programme selber setzt. Diese Programme sind im Allgemeinen cdrecord, growisofs und cdrdao. Man kann in diesem Fenster die "burning"-Benutzergruppe auswählen und K3b das Laufwerk zuweisen.


Die Oberfläche konfigurieren

Beim Start zeigt K3b Schnellstart-Knöpfe für die drei am häufigsten gebrauchten Funktionen

*Neues Daten Projekt
: *Neues Audio CD Projekt 
: *Medium kopieren

K3b can perform much more than these tasks though, and so you may find that some of the other possibilities are just as useful to you. Take a look at this list for a taste of other available functions (click on the image to enlarge it):


Perhaps a quick start for one or more of these other tasks would be useful to you and so K3b can give you that, too. Simply right click on the application desktop, and here you will see a menu for adding buttons:


Configuring the internals

Most of the default settings can simply be left alone. It is however, recommended that you do take a look at the Advanced Settings page. Here you can set various important settings, if required.

  • Use Burnfree should be set — it controls the burn, ensuring that the buffer never gets dangerously low (which reduces the quantity of bad burns).
  • You may wish to automatically erase re-writable disks.
  • The option Do not eject medium after write process is invaluable if your drive is one that cannot be closed quickly enough for Verify to happen.

Preparing to burn a disk

When starting a new project, you should ensure that K3b has detected the correct optical media, such as CD or DVD. On the status line at the bottom of the screen you should see the size of disk which is currently set. If this is not correct, or you require a different size, simply right-click on it and set the preferred size from the provided list:


Now choose what is to be burnt. 

The top half of the screen is the source pane; it functions like a file manager. You can choose ordinary files from mounted data volumes or audio tracks from inserted audio discs. Names of audio tracks are automatically read from CD-TEXT data, if your CD drive supports reading it, or generated using CDDB; the exact format is controlled by a button in the bottom pane. If the names are incorrect or simply do not match the description of the disc, you can edit them using the toolbar button. Your changes will be cached locally and submitted to the master registry at FreeDB. Internet connection fees apply.

If the whole record is performed by the same artist, leave the track artist entries blank, fill the Album artist, save to CDDB and requery.

Now that you have your sources at hand, simply drag and drop the files and directories you wish to burn onto the large pane to the right at the bottom; this is the model pane. Behold a tree of your chosen files forming to the left. Should there be some files or directories which you do not want to burn, these can be easily removed from the project by simply removing them from the panel at the bottom. Select the file to be removed (you can control-click to select multiple ones), then choose Remove from the context menu.

If you need to compress audio, create a new audio CD project, add the files to be converted and press the button Convert Tracks. This will not affect the contents of the CD if you decide to burn it; however, you will be able to use the compressed files elsewhere. Make sure the original files are lossless (wav or FLAC), otherwise the result will be unsatisfactory.

The top line will be the title of the disk. In many cases this will be fine, but if you would like to change this to something else, simply rename it using the context menu.

Letzte Schritte

You are now ready to hit the Burn button.


You will see on my screenshot that no disk was present. When you have inserted the appropriate disk you will see a description of it on that line.

There are still one or two choices to be made. I would recommend that you set Verify written data, then hit the Save icon at the bottom of the screen, ensuring that it becomes your personal default. For most modern drives it's safe to leave mode and speed to Auto. If you may wish to burn another copy of the disk at a later date, select Create image, which will save having to set up the burn again. Set the number of copies you want to burn, then, when you are satisfied, hit Burn.
