I too am getting this error on both my machines running FC1. I'm not really
sure about how to cure it - any advice?

I get it whenever I try to burn a CD.
Since I can't reproduce it with cdrecord 2.01-0.a19.2 and k3b 0.10.2 from
, I conclude it is not a general problem, but could be
specific to some CD-writer drivers in cdrecord.
You could query bugzilla.redhat.com
on whether a problem with cdrecord has
been reported already. You could also try whether cdrecord itself works
for you when burning a CD at the command line. That would help in finding
out whether it's a problem in cdrecord or a problem between k3b and

The one that I installed using synaptic:
Side-note: the increase to Epoch 1 was not necessary. Be prepared that
whenever there'll be an official k3b in Fedora Extras, that you may need
to remove this package manually.
