What I did to fix k3b was to put dev=ATAPI:0,0,0 in as a user
parameter for cdrecord, and run k3b via sudo. Looking at the log,
for some reason k3b wants to use "dev=/dev/hdc" without any means
to change it. Now, the log shows  "dev=/dev/hdc  dev=ATAPI:0,0,0"
as the command line being used and cdrecord uses the latter in

Use sudo (set it up for "NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/k3b"), and remove
any suid bits on the cdrecord binaries. I use kernel.org
and all is well.
