There is a lot that goes into getting your burner to work, and you need to give more information about your system--what does k3b tell you--what are the error messages? What kernel are you using 2.4.xx or 2.6.x? You need to look into dmesg and see what it tells you about your writer. The more information you can give, the more people can help you.

i had the same problem too.
in the /etc/fstab, tel the cdwriter is /dev/hdd
and remove the append in /etc/lilo.conf and then run lilo.
It should work. At least with me it did.

You should also add this to your lilo file: hdc=scsi-cdrom

I think this is right...it's been awhile since I toyed with the 2.6 kernel.

try this on the command line:
cat /proc/scsi/scsi

your cdrw should show here if your kernel is seeing it properly.

Do you have all of the programs K3B uses installed? Open up K3B's configuration settings and find the programs tab. Everything it needs for running is there, especially ones like cdrdao and cdrecord. If there's anything it can't detect, make sure you have it installed and in your PATH.

Also, there's a bug with kernel 2.6.8 and K3B that keeps it from detecting the writer unless you are running is as root. A new version of K3B has been released to fix this, so you might try upgrading.

I had also problems with my burner
cdrecord (v2.01) seems to have issues with Linux-2.5 and newer
try to start k3b as root
( in kde press ALT+F2 then enter k3b and use "run as different user" in the option menu )

im able to burn like that.
I hope there will be another solution soon : )
