I have always liked K3b, but as you have observed, it can be problematic.
Brasero is a good basic burner application.
It sometimes makes a difference which desktop environment you are using and which Linux distro.
If you post that information you may get some good recommendations.
I still use K3b even though it likes to complain a lot :rolleyes:

Are you wanting to create copy iso files to thumb drivers or are you actually wanting to burn a dvd? dd FTW win if you are just wanting to create thumb drives to live boot from.

I've never had any issues with k3b or Brasero.

These days, I hardly ever bother with optical media, so I may not be the greatest reference point. I did do some k3b testing as a matter of course, but had no issues with it. (It's the default in Lubuntu, so it gets tested by at least me.)

Thought... if you have a mix of sound formats and want to burn to a single format [say MP4/Ogg/Wma etc ] to MP3 I use the gnome sound converter first
sudo apt install soundconverter
