Package: k3b
Version: 0.12.17-8
Severity: important

On a PC with a CD writer connected via SATA, etch's k3b fails to write
CDs, at least when writing precreated ISO images. wodim aborts with
"No such file or directory". This is caused by k3b calling wodim with the
device option "dev=1,0,0" which apparently doesn't work with SATA burners.
Correct option would be "dev=/dev/scd0".

A fix which should work on a wide variety of machines (even those with
IDE burners) is to create the file /usr/share/config/k3brc with the
following content:

[External Programs]
cdrecord user parameters=dev=/dev/cdrw

Well, it's a hack, because k3b then calls wodim like:
# wodim ... dev=1,0,0 ... dev=/dev/cdrw ...
but luckily the latter dev option takes effect. And of course this only
makes sense if there is only one CD writer in the system.

Note: the machine is not running an official Debian kernel, but I can't rule out that this affects wodim's behaviour.
