Hi lali.b2,
K3B does indeed write to DVD's, By default it may not appear as an option when you first start K3B, so in this case heres what you do,

1: start K3B
2: at the main start screen where you see your burning options click "burn DVD iso image"

if that option isn't there right click the main option area in a blank section and select add button, from the menu that appears select "burn DVD iso image"

The rest is just a case of selecting the iso you want to burn!

Hope this helps, let me know either way!

Good Stuff!

Well lali.b2 i'm glad you got your problem sorted, if you really want to help then remember what you learned and pass it onto the next person who needs that very same advice. Linux rocks because Linux users like to share information. Good communications = good people!

Have fun burning!

P.S Glad you chose linux!
