These tools do not opperate on the contents of files. Click 'Computer'
→ 'Search' or (old menu system) 'Places' → 'Search for Files' and enter
'cdrecord'. On my 10.2 installation, the search finds the RELEASE-NOTES

New wodim Package to Write Optical Disc Media (CD-ROM and DVD)

The cdrecord package has been dropped from the distribution. The new
wodim package can be used to record data or audio CDs on a CD recorder
that conforms with the Orange Book standard or to write DVD media on a
DVD recorder.

Alternatively use growisofs for writing DVDs. The graphical front-ends
handle this transparently.
