No problems here at all with k3b and I am using a Pioneer 110 drive. 
Working very well, thank you :-) .

I did have some trouble a couple of weeks ago when I had to throw out 2 
DVDs which displayed the same (or close enough to it so as to be the 
same) error message and this was caused by a couple of bad DVD blanks - 
pulled the 3rd one from the spindle and all worked AOK from then on.


ATTORNEY:  Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he
                    doesn't know about it until the next morning?
WITNESS:   Did you actually pass the bar exam?
