  <title>Media Management With Kubuntu</title>
  &legalnotice;
  <abstract>
    <para>
      This document provides information concerning the types of media that can 
      be used with &kubuntu;, as well as how to write to the media.

  <title>Introduction</title>
  <para>
    &kubuntu; supports many types of media with a standard installation, 
    including &usb; hard drives, &usb; flash drives, internal and external 
    &cdrom;s, &cd;s, &dvd;s, and more.
  </para>
  <para>
    Most of the time, when attaching media such as a &cd;, &dvd;, external hard 
    drive, &usb; flash drive, or compact flash drive, &kubuntu; automatically 
    recognizes the media, displays a notification that it has recognized the 
    media, and allows for an action to be selected depending on the type of 
    media it is. For instance, inserting a &cd; or &dvd; would allow for it to 
    be mounted, opened with &k3b; for burning if it is blank, opened with 
    &amarok; if it is an audio &cd;, or opened with &dragonplayer; if it is a 
    &dvd;. To see the available actions, <mousebutton>click</mousebutton> the 
    media icon to the left of the media that has been recognized.

  <title>ISO Images</title>
  <para>
    An &iso; image is an archive file that is formatted to be used with &cd;s or 
    &dvd;s. &kubuntu; is easily acquired as an &iso; file and then burned to 
    either a &cd;, a &dvd;, or written to a &usb; flash drive in a bootable 
    format. Review the <link linkend="write-cd-dvd">Write to &cd;s or 
    &dvd;s</link> section or the section on creating <link 
    linkend="usb">Bootable &iso; Images From &usb; Media</link> for further 
    information.

    &kubuntu; ships with &k3b;, a &cd; and &dvd; creator. With &k3b;, it is 
    possible to create a data or audio project, copy a &cd; or &dvd;, format or 
    erase a rewritable disk, as well as rip audio and video &cd;s and &dvd;s.

        drive will be used to run the &kubuntu; desktop live. Use the slider to 
        select the amount of storage space. The other option, 
        <guibutton>Discarded on shutdown, unless you save them 
        elsewhere</guibutton>, will not store data on the device. Use this 
        selection if the &usb; flash drive is only for installing the &kubuntu;
