Welcome to Arson!

Arson is a KDE frontend to various CD burning, and ripping tools. It was originally begun to burn audio CDs because i could find no other frontends which used cdrdao (in disk at once mode), which could decode various encoded audio formats (mp3, ogg), and displayed accurate track length as the playlist was created. But as usual once the initial plans were implemented I just kept going...

Arson has expanded to be a CD ripper (with many output formats), a VCD/Music/Data burner, a CD copier, a device unlocker, and a CDRW blanker. And that's in the current version! Click the "Features" link to see a complete list of current and planned features.
