Jeff,

I have clear that a disk MUST be unmounted, but I have also clear that
a standard user SHOULD not bother with line commands as there is no
option to unmount  CDRW from menus.
And the problem is also with nautilus burner, so it is not a problem
with k3b but how the system mounts/umounts CDRW.
But I understand that I am the only one to experience this problem
(that I had not before latest updates, I am sure as I blanked/burnt my
FC5 on CDRW!!!!)...

My other two cents

Tnx
