My DVD writer is a NEC DVD_RW ND-6750A, system is Jaunty i386. These are 
my test results with the new k3b version from the ppa 

* New data project.

When I select "new data project" k3b dies immediately. No file 
~/.kde/share/apps/k3b/lastlog.log is written.

* Erase CD-RW: OK.

* Write ISO image to CD-RW:

After selecting the image file (xubuntu image) there is an error 
message "md5-sum: calculation failed" (my translation).

Burning is OK without verify. With verify there is an error message 
which looks like a verify failure but the image is burned OK. The error 
message is above the line with elapsed time and only says "error" (my 
translation). Then the disk gets ejected.

Here are the last lines from ~/.kde/share/apps/k3b/lastlog.log:

* New Audio CD (medium = CD-RW):

When the burning procedure is started, there are 2 wodim processes but 
nothing happens (no I/O activity) even after 1/4 hour. Only if I select 
to create an image, it works and the audio CD is burned OK.
