Good point:

I should have mentioned the CD/DVD/BD burn item in the FAQ too:

but when I did, I used K3b or wodim from the command line.

I omitted wodim from my answer, because it can hardly do DVD and would
do Blu-ray only by accident. One should use it only for burning CD.

For completeness: There is also cdrecord, which fell into disgrace
with Debian long ago. It can do BD-R and BD-RE, does not format BD-R
by default, and cannot disable Defect Management on BD-RE.

I've never had trouble with wodim for burning DVDs. I've never tried to burn a bluray of any kind though.

I prepare my USB flash drives using the instructions found at
https://www.debian.org/releases/stable/amd64/ch04s03.html.en. Using preseed.cfg files is very helpful.
