I know this reply comes very late and you've probably already fixed the problem. However, maybe some other hapless soul, such as myself, will stumble across you original quyestion looking for the very same answer...

For security reasons, cdrecord and the other cd- and dvd-related utilities running on systems with kernels greater than 2.6.8 no longer require root suid in order for non-root users to burn CD's and DVD's. In fact, if your kernel is 2.6.8 or above cdrecord will NOT burn media if it's root suid AND you're a NON-ROOT user. To fix the problem, simply remove the suid permissions from the /usr/bin/cd* and /usr/bin/dvd* utilities.

Quit k3b.
Open a terminal.
Enter the following commands (you only need sudo if you're NOT root)
sudo chmod ug-s /usr/bin/cd*
sudo chmod ug-s /usr/bin/dvd*
Restart k3b and try again.

That should fix the problem. At least it did for me...
