hi all, i know cdwrites and how to use them comes up reasonably frequently but i think this particular problem didn't so far: i've got the cdwriter all set up on a toshiba satellite laptop, i can write cds using command line tools. however, using a gui cdwriting tool like koncd/kreatecd does not work. what happens is that when the media information is collected the cd is automatically ejected (and usually loaded again). since it's a laptop it doesn't load the cd again and the program dies and i can't use the gui program. did anyone find a solution to this problem or should i tell my flatmate to get used to the command line. cheers magi

Magnus,

You need to try one of the GUI CD writers that just a pretty front end for the command line tools.
I think X-CD-Roast is one such tool. Try http://www.xcdroast.org
