I'm trying to Copy Files from my USB to a DVD-R but K3b does not recognize my USB?  Yes it is Mounted.  Important files I need to send to people, would be very nice to get this one done.

 

Thanks pcpunk

Import your files first into your documents,then burn them to a CD or DVD.I've had to do that a couple of times.

Just drag your mouse over all the files and highlight them - then paste into your documents. Almost the way you do it in Windows but in Linux when you Highlight the files they are already copied,then just drag the first one into your Documents and they will all copy over! I learned this through sever attempts at the traditional Copy And PAste method used in WIndows - but it is a little different! You don't have to copy each file individually!

Gotcha, I've Copied many files over this way but I have a slow USB and there are a LOT of files LOL.  It's all good that will work, just though I could just do like normal and Copy from USB.  I think I have burned iso's from USB to DVD also? hmm?

Within K3b, your USB Drive does not show up clicking the folder icon between the Format button and the current folder (Home)? or browsing the folder-tree to Root/media/username/mounted_device?

@nuna:  Thank you, got it!  Sometimes I'm to timid, as it has caused me problems in the past just clicking on stuff.  I knew it had to be there somewhere.  I know I burned some iso's to disk from USB before but I think it was other burning software, thanks again!  I really need to know how to use these important things, and I think K3b is very sweet, and maybe even comes with KDE (can't remember now).

@pcpunk, you're welcome. ​It's not so obvious to find it when used to other interfaces. I would expect the devices to be listed in the left pane (in a prominent way) as most file managers do.

You are right, k3b is part of KDE Applications.
