Does this imply you're not able to (create and) burn the image with K3B?
Does K3B report "no media" errors?

In worst case, why not use the "growisofs" command and burn the existing
image to the DVD, just to check if it works?

	% growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=imagefile.iso

where /dev/dvd is the device file of the DVD recorder (could be /dev/cd0
as well, check "dmesg" output), and imagefile.iso is the name of the ISO
image you already have.

To use this command, the package "dvd+rw-tools" needs to be installed. If
I remember correctly, K3B also requires this, so it should already be there.
