This can be done in 2 step:

1- You can use soundjuicer to strac de music from CD to mp3 files (you will need audio codecs from RPM Fusion).

2- Then you can burn the MP3 files to a DVD with Brasero, K3B or Xburn.

If your your music as MP3 most of DVD palyer will the music without problems.

Thanks, but I would like to preserve original quality from CD to DVD-R. Sorry I wasn't more clear about that. There is a paid program for Windows that claims to do what I'm trying to describe: Prefer something compatible with fedora.

There's nothing inherently low quality about mp3 - or flac, or whatever format you work with. Encode to a suitably high bitrate, and you'll get a result that all but well trained or superstitious ears can appreciate.

The quality of a MP3 depend about the bitrate (how many bits of music are procesed by second) a MP3 with a bitrate of 192kbps will be the same quality to a Music CD, so you can set sound-juicer to use a 320 kbps for your MP3 file a will have a excellent quality.

I have some flac files, is that an option for use in conventional CD or Blu Ray player? As I understand? flac is a lossless encoding process? I have a very old stereo, but also very high quality, of course player is much newer (Sony). I'll try both solutions, but don't really want to waste a DVD-R if flac won't work...

@elwood the burning application will usually convert to the appropriate format on the fly.
