"Unknown error code 255" trying to burn CD with K3B 0.11.2cvs

This past week I upgraded my system from Mandrake 9.2 to Mandrake 10.0 RC1. I just downloaded the Mandrake 10.0 Community ISO's and am having problems burning them with K3B. When I try to burn the ISO's I get "cdrecord returned an unknown error (code 255)". The detailed output is below.

I tried X-CD-Roaster and it said that I had selected an ATAPI drive, which is I guess a bad thing, and I should try to install SCSI emulation. I have no idea what that means.

I've burned many CD's with whatever version of K3B came with Mandrake 9.2 with no problems, so this is a new one on me.

Thanks in advance...

K3b Version: 0.11.2cvs
KDE Version: 3.2 BRANCH >= 20040204
QT Version: 3.2.3
