Angry K3B doesn't recognize my CDWriter


I'm trying to get K3B to work, but it "sees" my CDWriter (a GCE-8525B) as just a reader, and thus doesn't allow me to burn a CD.

When I use the K3B setup program, at the 2nd screen (configuring CD devices) my device appears under "READERS", and there are no options under "WRITERS" -- and I cannot manage to make my device appear there, where it should be.

What am I doing wrong?
