    IIRC Nautilus (the GNOME filemanager) has a inbuilt cd burning facility similar to incd. If you are using KDE, you can still run Nautilus as long as you install the required libraries and in your case, the cd-burning plugin. Launch Yast and search for nautilus as well as for its cd burning plugin. Then click on the check dependancies and agree to install the extra libs and things for nautilus to work.

    Any one done any RPM's to update my suse
    What exactly do you mean by this?

    also, whats wrong with K3B, it is simple to use and far more configurable and powerful than nero.

    I want to use my writeable cds and dvds Like I can on windows.. To drag and move files back and forth etc.. Something like udf packet writing..

    what you describe is available for nautilus and all those things can be found on your SuSE installation media. You don't need a rpm to enable this, just launch yast and search for those things.

    I have to say though nautilus is a pain to use.. I mostly use KDE

    so konq is my file mgr of choice.
    Ive pretty much looked all over my destro with yast. but to no avil..

    But as of now I cant copy or move files in my file manager. to my cdrw's Unless I use k3b and burn them on.. And I dont want to burn files all the time.. Maybe its a mounting issue I dont know..
    But im bout to say the heck with it.. and use flash drives in sted for my files.. When I need to store things on a temp basis..

    It's supposed to be possible, but it's also said to be difficult to get it working properly. Here's a HowTo on the Gentoo Wiki that explains how it works. You might be able to get enough info there to make it work for your distribution:

    Hope it helps...

    BTW: I just use flash drives for my files.

    You might also take a look at the packet-writing topic in the Suse mailing list. It seems there might be a workable solution for you, although not an easy one:

    yes I can say not easy

    I'll tinker with it..
    Maybe in time newer versions of linux will solve the issue

    Just be one more step creeping in to take over windows desktops

    I never used InCD on Windows because it displayed a tendency towards never working. Also, with CDRs as cheap as they are now, I see no reason you'd need this capability.

    However, all that said, you can (as has been mentioned before) do this using Nautilus. If you don't like the interface, just use it for when you need this capability and you should be fine...
