GnomeBaker is a free CD/DVD authoring application for Unix-like computer operating systems. It is based on GNOME desktop environment.


The GnomeBaker offers many features for authoring CDs that surpass the basic Nautilus CD/DVD burning capabilities. Among these are the possibility to create an audio cd from existing sound files and other useful things.

Available functions include:

  • Create data CDs.
  • Blank RW disks.
  • Burn DVDs.
  • Copy data and audio CDs.
  • Support multisession burning.
  • Record to and burn from existing CD ISO images.
  • Can burn via SCSI and ATAPI on Linux kernels 2.4 and 2.6.
  • Drag and drop to create data CDs (including drag and drop to/from the Nautilus file manager).
  • Create audio CDs from existing WAV, MP3, FLAC, and Ogg files.
  • Integrate with GConf for storage of application settings.


  • Does not support Universal Disk Format ("UDF"); only supports ISO 9660.
  • Does not support the multi-extent (fragmentation) feature of ISO 9660 Level 3. Consequently, there is a filesize limit of 4GB.


Robin Monks of the Free Software Magazine gave GnomeBaker an overall score of 7 out of 10.
