Fc15 writing an iso on a dvd with k3b - Unable to mount DVD-R

I have a FC15 system that I am trying to create an iso image of Fc16
using k3b. I can not get k3b to recognize a blank DVD-R disk.  I can
mount and read other CD and DVD media without a problem, but I am unable
to get FC15 to recognize an unformatted DVD.

Are there other software packages besides k3b that allow creating disks
from iso images?

I am not sure if this is an fc15 problem or k3b, I am suspicious that
this is an FC15 problem.

Has anyone else had this problem?

Any solutions?

Additional testing has demonstrated that my f15 system will not
recognize a blank DVD-R disc, but will recognize a blank CD-R disc.  I
have also used brasero, acetone, without success.
