Did you always use K3B? Have you changed permissions on the device files?
And finally: Are you sure that you are really using a blank DVD-R that is
not defective? I'm asking because I was that "clever" myself to try to
write to a defective media. :-)

Okay, this indicates it writed DVD-R. Additionally, it doesn't seem to
be able to write DVD+R. Again, check for the appropriate media.

Everything else looks completely valid.

Have you tried to use "plain" growisofs in order to check that it's
not a K3B problem?
