Thanks in advance.
The last time I burned a ISO with K3b it returned the same error and told me I had to set up a burning group. So I logged on as root, fired up K3b again, and under "Settings" and then "Setup System permissions" created a "burn" group. It suggested "burning," but I changed it to "burn" and it was accepted. I then edited the /etc/group file and added my user name to the "burn" group (without the quotes marks, of course). That solved the problem.
