When the atapicam module is loaded, it treats ATAPI CDs like SCSI ones, 
so you should get names like cd0 and cd1. Can you perform an ls /dev/cd* 
and see if these devices exist? I haven't used a SATA recorder in my 
machine yet, but since the ata driver attaches to them, I see no reason 
they should not work with atapicam. Have you tried burning from the 
command line? And have you followed all the post-install instructions in 
k3b? (try make showinfo in the port's directory).
