Angry K3B - Disk copying problem


I've just tried setting up K3B and attempted to copy an audio CD....

I've set this all up before on another machine, but for the record, here's what i did this time -

1. Set up SCSI emulation on the read device (DVD-ROM)
2. Rebooted machine, fired up K3B.
3. Set CDRDAO drivers to generic-mmc for both reader & writer (DVD RW drive)
4. Tried to copy disk. Exited with a message pertaining to a problem with CDRDAO..

The drives in the machine are both fairly cheapo jobs I think..

Does anyone have any ideas? Oh, nearly forgot - using K3B v.0.8.1 / KDE 3.1.1 / SuSE 8.2

Thanks for any help!

Hey, K3b v 0.11 is available at kde-apps. This version addresses some disk copying problems. Try it.
