K3b was created to be a feature-rich and easy to handle CD burning application. It consists of basically three parts:

  • The projects: Projects are created from the file menu and then filled with data to burn
  • The Tools: The tools menu offers different tools like CD copy or DVD formatting
  • Context sensitive media actions: When clicking on the Icon representing a CD/DVD drive K3b will present its contents and allow some further action. This is for example the way to rip audio CDs
