Linux or K3B issue???

As a rule I think multiple list posting is inappropriate, but after posting the following on kde-linux it seems to me that the problem may be with the hardware setup in my Debian installation. So I thought I'd at least ask if you-all could note any details regarding what to look for in my optical hardware configuration?

Thank you for your patience,

kde-linux post
So you understand I'm at the early learning stage:
In the last several days I've expunged MS from the PC on my LAN and installed Debian. Being very happy with my Mac, I went with KDE to allow a somewhat similar desktop.

Now it's time to backup what I've done before I screw it up :-) so I also installed K3B to use optical media. In my trials today I've had no problem creating and restoring a data CD, but I can't get K3B to do anything with DVDs. I've tried DVD-R and DVD-RW, and even different brands of each (Verbatim, hp and imation). I hate to use umpteen CDs when one or two DVDs will do the trick :-(

I have a Benq 32x10x40 CD R/W in an internal bay (hdc) and a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-103 in another internal bay (hdd). If I load a DVD with contents, K3B lists what is on it and if I load a blank DVD it says it knows that also.

I don't know if this is a linux issue or a K3B issue and I'm not sure where to go from here. The applicable errors noted are below.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

Thank you,
Lee C
