Can't burn a cd using mdk 9.2 & k3b

I can't burn a cd using mandrake 9.2 and k3b (or cdbakeoven).
The drive will read discs in kde and play audio and dvd in totem.
In k3b if i select my cd drive it gives 'malformed url' although if i then select disc info it will show that as long as the disc has something on it - if not it simply says no disc in drive
When i try to write a disc i get the error
found media: cd rom
please insert an empty medium into drive

i also tried cdbakeoven but had similar results
i've tried two brands of cdr without success

a while ago i did succeed in burning an audio disc (legally!) but it's not worked since

the cd bit in the mandrake config bit says
mount point /mnt/cdrom2
device scd0
type auto
options supermount,ro,iocharset=iso8859-15

it would be nice to be able to back up data so any help greatly appreciated!
