How to burn a linux .iso to a RW disc? Btw, the disc has data inside, so I have to erase it and then burn the iso image to the disc

Update: After burning the linux iso I can't mount the cdrom, and the dvd won't boot too on computer start.

If I insert the disc while on OS, the cdrom won't mount. Also if I open gparted it stays "scanning all devices..." forever.

I've also noticed that the were mounted 3 discs or partions after burning the disc.

if i run sudo mount /dev/sr0 the terminal stays waiting forever

update: it shows this mounted discs or partitions but the cdrom/optical drive can't mount the dvd nor can be detected

enter image description here

Note: If i remove dvd this partitions stay mounted and accecible

    brasero would be a standard GUI-suite that allows you erasing and burning disk. – FelixJN Apr 8 '19 at 20:33

Install Brasero from a terminal window with sudo apt-get install brasero

Once installed, launch it, and choose Burn Image Brasero Main Menu, then select the file with the .ISO file you verified by checksum comparison.

Select the drive with the RW disc, and tell Brasero to blank (erase) the contents of the disc, then click Burn to start writing.
