Burn Data CD Using gnomebaker
If you wish to make a Data CD, click Data CD near the bottom.
Add the files and click "Burn"
Burn Audio CD Using gnomebaker
If you want to make an Audio CD, click Audio CD instead of Data CD.
Change the audio CD length from 21 minutes to 80 minutes (a standard CD size) so that you can add a reasonable amount of music to the CD.
Add the music and hit "Burn".
Burn .iso using gnomebaker
To make an ISO image, click Tools, and then Burn CD/DVD image depending on if you are burning to a CD or DVD. Then you will need to find the location of the ISO image (e.g /home/name/Desktop/someiso.iso)
You can copy another CD/DVD or Audio CD by selecting the option that applies from the Tools menu.
Writing a multisession disk with GnomeBaker
1. Add Files to Data Disk
2. Create data disk. Mode="default" or "tao" (default should be tao, i.e. track-at-once).
1. Import the previous session(s) (Import button). You might have to unmount the disk manually in case you get errors at importing the disk (apparently GnomeBaker can't handle very well the unmounting of a mounted CD)
2. Add Files to Data Disk
3. Create data disk. Mode="default" or "tao" (default should be tao, i.e. track-at-once).
And that's it. You should have now a multisession disk.
