I agree with the suggestion made by Austin Isler. Check whether cdrecord
at the command-line manages to use your CD burners. If it doesn't, you
know it's the culprit. Be sure to compare with the alternative CD burning
programs, too.

Prior to being included in Fedora Core 2, k3b has been in fedora.us
"testing" (also for Fedora Core 1.9x) for several months and used
successfully by users with the test releases and by many users on older
distributions. However, the "testing" repository has been chosen
particularly because k3b depends on cdrecord and its support for CD
burners, and according to reports cdrecord is known to give some users a
headache (though often it's misconfiguration, too). So, there's some level
of uncertainty which needs testing.
