It seems that KonCD is still having problems as I and others cannot seem
to get it working either. The warning on your drive simple means that
the expected speed of the CD drive is not what the scanning found. I
have that same warning with a cdrom here. It is rated at 52x max, but
it does not and most don't run at max speed, give that speed to
cdrecord, thus a warning, nothing to worry about.

The reason the drive is not being seen is probably because it is linked
to hdd or hdc rather than sr0 or sr1 as it should be. 8.0 did that to
my second drive as well and after I deleted the cdrom symlink and
created another to sr1, all worked well with the cd burning programs.
