K3b usually autodetects cd and dvd writers. If it hasn't you can configure this in the configuration setings. You can also burn an iso by doing as root,
#cdrecord -v dev=/dev/hdc isoname.iso
Substitute /dev/hdc with your own cd or dvd writer device name.

this might be silly, but did you check that the drive is connected to IDE controller? run this command

cdrecord --scanbus
