Last night I downloaded K3B using Synaptic. It seemed to download and install OK. But when I start it, I get a dialogue box which says the following;
cdrecord does not run with root priveleges
It is highly recommended to configure cdrecord to run with root privileges. Only then cdrecord runs with high priority which increases the overall stability of the burning process.
