Easy File Transfer to CDRW/DVDRW

Recently, I made the switch to linux and for almost 2 months have been having a great experience with using linux. I picked SUSE and while everyone might not like it, I do. But, I am sorted stumped as to how to do the same thing that I did in Win in Linux (maybe I can't). Out of the 3 machines I have 1 runs Linux, 1 runs Win, and 1 well...its very very old - I use the Linux machine 99.9% of the time. In Win when I wanted to copy a file to my cdrw or dvdrw, I just basically just copied it. Guess what, it doesn't work in Linux. Basically "could not write to /media/file" after right clicking mouse and selecting "Copy to". I use the same DVD burner I had in Win. I have experimented with k3b, but being new I must not be doing something right because it seems to save the files as though they were an iso image - like the SUSE iso image I burned after downloading it on the Win Machine. Any ideas or pointers - like a setting I am missing in k3b?

When you open k3b, you should be able to choose "new data CD project" or "new data DVD project" which (I think) is the same thing you're describing. This is not an ISO image. To do that you would select "burn CD image" or "burn DVD ISO image".
