welcome to LQ!!

Please do not use the abbreviated language (SMS or whatever it is called)---it makes it much more difficult to read and understand what you are saying.

Try running k3b as root (In a terminal, first enter "su" to become root, and then "k3b")

Assuming this works, then try adding yourself to the cdrom group. On some systems, there will be also/instead something like the "optical" group. You can see all groups (and their members) by doing "more /etc/group".

I missed that!!

Sanjib;
If you did not install k3b using the package manager, then you may have a dependency issue.

Now that I think about, F8 really **should** have SW for CD recording. You might want to have another look.
