Thanks for this. Doesn't really explain anything, for me at least, 
except to indicate that some sort of a problem with K3b goes back 3 or 4 
years now.

But I told a fib in one of my earlier posts: I wasted 3 CDs, not 2.

I always verify the burn of an iso in K3b. The first CD burn was OK 
except that during the verification stage suddenly K3b could not read 
Sectors . OK, I thought, a faulty CD. But the next 2 simply did not even 
get to the burning stage with K3b coming up with the error that I had no 
permission to use the damn thing - but looking at the inner ring on the 
CDs showed that something was written to the "directory". Which is when 
I switched over to Brasero and burned the iso of RC1.

Now that I have used it, I like Brasero but haven't yet looked at how I 
can configure it to verify a burn - if it will do so, that is.
