I insert a blank writable CD, open the "folder" with Files (ex Nautilus) and copy the files I want to burn. What do I do next?

(I don't find any "Burn now" button, "Eject" just ejects the CD without burning, "Format" doesn't do anything and left-button doesn't have anything related to burning.)

(I can burn with other programs, like xfec-burn but that is not the idea)

(Found the solution myself)

Install sudo yum install brasero-nautilus, then a "Write to disk" appears on the top o the folder window.

(This should be installed by default in Fedora! It is very confusing now)

Bonus: This will also install Brasero, (remember to open Brasero and disable the plugin "File Checksum" to make the burning process faster by not checking the saved data.)
