What? Do you want to burn a CD that contains MP3 files (upto around 150 of them on a 650Mb CD) or did you want to convert the MP3s to CDAudio and burn that?

Have you tried running K3B from the command line and seeing if it spouts out any errors? If you have the correct programmes installed, it can find them and all the read/write/execute permissions are set appropriately, then you shouldn't have any problems. Unfortunately running it by clicking on an icon in the GUI doesn't allow you to see what errors are produced.

K3B, like all other programmes, uses other programmes to do the hard work - it is just a GUI wrapper for them, if you like. You will need cdrecord, cdrdao, and some other stuff (check out the k3b requirements page).

Or, you could try Eclipit Roaster (ERoaster, for short).

K3B is going to be your best bet for that. go to http://k3b.sourceforge.net and get the latest version. Then, make sure you change the cdrdao driver to generic-mmc...for both your reader and burner...oh, and also, if your mp3s are on a windows partition, move them to your home directory. I tried to convert mp3s to cd audio while they were on an old windows drive and k3b hung forever but when I moved them to my home drive it worked without a hitch.
