K3B initially detects a blank dvd-r disks and lists all the info about it. When I'm ready to burn my project however, the disk fails to show up in the "Burn Medium" window. I get "Please insert an empty or appendable medium." I've tried a couple disk, and the drive shows up in K3B settings.

??? ??? ???

I'm using Kubuntu 12.10.

Please run the following command:
Code: Select all
solid-hardware query 'IS OpticalDrive'


For each "udi = '/org/freedesktop/UDisks/devices/deviceName0'" it provides, take the "/org/freedesktop/UDisks/devices/deviceName0" part and pass it to the following command as follows:
Code: Select all
solid-hardware details /org/freedesktop/UDisks/devices/deviceName0


Please paste the output of the "solid-hardware details" commands here.

The size reading of 2048 is slightly concerning, did you have a blank disc in there at the time?
That output otherwise looks fine.

If you perform a disc burn manually (using CLI tools) do they work?

There's a disk in it. Need to take that out . . .

I wouldn't know how to burn from the command line.

The following seems like it may have some information on using 'wodim' at least:

I made an .iso with K3B and tried burning with Wodim. It threw an error that looks like Wodim thinks the dvd+r disk is a cdr, but Wodim appears to have found the drive o.k.

Here's the error output -

From my interpretation, wodim is detecting a DVD+R disc in the drive:
Code: Select all
Current: 0x001B (DVD+R)

However, the following indicates that this disc has possibly been written to before:
Code: Select all
Blocks total: 2295104 Blocks current: 2295104 Blocks remaining: -1087381

As DVD+R discs can only be written in a particular location once, there is insufficient space on the disc in this instance from what I can tell.

Can you please try a new DVD+R disc?

I've tried two more disks with the same result.

Based on the errors given by wodim, can you verify that the image you are trying to write is below 4gb in size?
