These two recomendations are not required. A slave device on an old
40pin cable with two drives should still be able to push 20+ MB/sec.

At any rate in this case the physical connection of the drives is
obviously correct as Nero has no trouble. I would suspect the k3b
configuration. I recommend a google search for the dvd burner model
number and linux. i.e. google for  "gsa-4163 linux".
