Seems to be OK. You can also run cdrecord -scanbus or cat
/proc/scsi/scsi to see if your devices are listed.

So cdrecord is installed. K3B has a setup program (k3bsetup). Did you
try to run it? I think it will give you the oportunity to say where
your cdrecord executable is.

Check the permissions. Very probably you have to add yourself to the
cdrom group.
