Timing issues with different drive hardware seem to be an issue indeed.
Some drives take a long time to reload the tray and examine the disc.
Other drives are quick at that.
As mentioned in bz #440343 I can verify ISOs in k3b just fine _if_ burning
CDs or CD-RWs. Only temporarily it was broken just as with DVDs. Meanwhile
I burn on a different Linux platform.
