What permissions ? Did you end up adding your user to group 'cdrom' or something like that ?

I do note there is a bug with K3b in KDE-4.6 which will result in a K3b update ... From the packman mailing list:

Since you guys are going to release new versions of your distributions in the coming months, I'd like to inform you that Michal Malek will release a new version soon -- probably next week.

It'll fix the HAL problems when running K3b on Platform 4.6 by introducing a compile-time CMake parameter to disable HAL (K3B_ENABLE_HAL_SUPPORT=OFF).

Please include that version with your distro releases. It's a bugfix release, adding no new features, hence it does not violate any feature freeze which might be in effect for your distribution.
