I too encountered this error - K3b had been working well the last time I burned a CD (4-6 weeks ago) and I have been running Feisty release candidates since January I believe.
When I re-inserted the CD and re-ran the "wodim" command:
/usr/bin/wodim -v gracetime=2 dev=/dev/hdc speed=8 -dao driveropts=burnfree -overburn -data -tsize=356786s -
The output is as follows:
