Do you have any symlinks for your CD writer device in /dev?
$ ls -l /dev/cd*
If not, it's likely that udev has not detected your drive as a CD-Writer
and set up the device node with the appropriate permissions.
What type of CD writer do you have and what device (in /dev) does it use
when you run k3b etc. as root?
