    In theory you can, but in practice it doesn't work. Why? Because of the I/O overhead of the drives and limitations of the ATA contollers - I am assuming you have ATA/IDE burners and not sata ones? With Sata burners, you may be more successful. In any case, ATA or Sata drives not withstanding, you want to minimize disc I/O when you are burning CD/DVD discs or you will likely end up with coasters. I have a dual burner setup myself on a really fast system and this is what I have found after burning many, many CDs and DVDs.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    K3b only supports one operation like burning or ripping at a time as well as only one instance of itself, although the tools that it uses such as mkisofs and such can be used to do what you want. They are command-line tools, so you'd have to run them manually in order to burn 2 discs at a time. Personally, I think that doing so is not advisable without specialized hardware.
