Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Try shutting the automount off. If it is the same problem as fedora used to have K3b wants to be the only thing accessing the disk. If automount is on it also has access to the drive, then k3b gets mad.
It still doesn't work. I turned off automount, using /etc/rc.d/init.d/autofs stop and tried again with the exact same error message.
Even if I turned off automount, whenever I insert a CD/DVD I get a prompt about either opening the device or doing nothing. When I select "Do nothing" I still get the icons on the desktop; if I right click on them and select "Unmount" nothing happens. I tried to issue the command "umount /dev/scd1" and I get the message that it is unmounted.
Another thing is that k3b prompts me to insert a blank CD/DVD even though there is one in there, which is being correctly recognized as a writeable DVD. I have to select "Force" to start the copying process, which then ends in the shown error.
If it is still showing up on the desktop then the automount (the gnome one, assuming gnome) is not getting shut off. In Fedora it would be: System->Preferences->Hardware->Removable Drives and Media, uncheck- Mount removable media when inserted.
I was using KDE, so I switched to Gnome but to no avail. I am checking if automount is running with /etc/rc.d/init.d/autofs status and I am getting that automount is stopped. Then I checked in System->Preferences->Removable Drives and Media where I unchecked Mount removable media when inserted, but I keep getting the same error.
When I insert the DVD's, I don't see any icon for the source, but I still can see the destination (the blank one) icon as "Blank DVD-R disc" on the desktop. I tried to unmount manually, but it tells me they are already unmounted.
