K3B works flawlessly for me on some hardware, but not on others.  It seems to 
have problems with some DVD writers, being unable to re-close the door in time 
for the verify to continue.  The workaround, if your writer is one of those, 
is to change the setting that tells it to eject the disk on completion.  
You'll have to manually eject at the end, but that's a small price to pay.  
Meanwhile, for the one you've already burned you will have to resort to 
running md5sum (or other hash)  yourself.
