One thought, Bill. Try running k3b-setup as root. Try the various options
for setting read and write drives. If you mainly want CD-writing, and the
Lite-On is not happy, it may be worth setting it up that way and changing it
back only when you want to write a DVD.
Having said that, my old box which is due for a rebuild has an ancient
DVD-reader - JM-something-or-other - and a Lite-ON DVD Writer. For the last
3 years or so k3b has been using that perfectly happily. Of course it will
not be the same model as yours, being older, but it does suggest that Lite-On
keep reasonably well to standards.
