You could try to install K3B, it`s a sort of Ashampoo Burning studio for Ubutnu (KUbuntu, yes I know that Kubuntu-based programs donnot work properly in Gnome, but I did not have problems with this one). YOu have a lot of features and tools. Don`t forget to enable DMA first (for fast access on writing/reading CDs/DVDs)
