The version number of Brasero has jumped to 3.2 because it is part of Gnome 3.2 which is used on Mint 12. Older versions also had problems - this is not fixed by simply switching between 3.0 and 3.2.
You can use Xfburn. That's from Xfce but it requires installing far less libraries. K3b requires 60 MB of downloads and 200 MB of disk space for its KDE dependencies. But Xfburn requires only one megabyte of Xfce downloads so it's fine to use it on Gnome desktops. It does not add menu entries for other Xfce programs, like K3b does with Nepomuk.
I have not tried Xfburn myself, for me K3b works fine. I have enough free space on the disk in most computers so don't care about installed KDE software. Xfburn is a rather light program, K3b can do more but is perhaps a heavier program (apart from the dependency issues which I already mentioned).
