In fact no, my CD-writer doesn't work at all (cdrecord make my
computer freeze), so I just create an .iso and thought the test was
succesfull. In fact, I watched more cautiously, and CD-Archiving
doesn't work :

I have a folder /autre/Photos with 1.3 GO of pictures, mostly in
subdirectories, but also some pictures in the base directory (say
/autre/Photos/kipi.png )
Albums corresponds to keywords and not to directories in KimDaBa. If I
put a keyword (say "KDE") to /autre/Photos/kipi.png and select it to
burn it, here is what I get in the K3B project :

CD Album
\--- Photos
|        \--- the whole folder (1.3 GO)
|--- misc
|        \--- ThumbNails
\--- HTMLInterface
        \--- Keyword 1
         |--- KDE
         |--- Keyword 3

The plugin added the whole directory and all subdirectories while I
wanted just one picture (/autre/Photos/kipi.png)
That means I can't burn a CD, since it is 1.3GO big now.
The solution is to copy the pictures the same way you make the
HTMLInterface (which works fine, as you can see)

The bad code is I think in cdarchiving.cpp:1593
    for( QValueList<KIPI::ImageCollection>::Iterator it =
ListAlbums.begin(); it != ListAlbums.end(); ++it )
        d = new KIPICDArchivingPlugin::EventData;
        d->action = KIPICDArchivingPlugin::Progress;
        d->starting = true;
        d->success = false;
        d->message = i18n("Added Album '%1' into project...").arg(
        QApplication::postEvent(m_parent, new QCustomEvent(QEvent::User, d));
        AddFolderTreeToK3bXMLProjectFile( (*it).path().path(), &stream);
