Thread: Unable to burn CD-RW in K3b

    Default Unable to burn CD-RW in K3b

    Hi everyone,

    I'm unable to burn CD-RW in K3b (error message "cdrecord has no permission to open the device").

    Apparently, this is a wide-spread problem and there are a lot of posts on the internet that deal with it, but none of the advice I've found has worked so far.

    Any ideas?


    I've tried the following:

    (1) Updated K3b to the most recent version.

    (2) Checked the device name of my CD burner (= sr0), and made sure I have access to it (sr0 is assigned to the group "drive", and I've added myself to this group, and also to "cdrom", just to be sure).

    (3) Checked whether I have access to the applications /usr/bin/cdrecord, /usr/bin/wodim, and /usr/bin/cdrdao. Set the permissions to 775 (rwxrwxrx) and the ownership/group ownership to root/disk.

    Hi
    Try changing the the sticky bit;
    Code:
    sudo chmod 4755 /usr/bin/wodim
    cdrecord is a softlink to wodim, also do the same for cdrdao

    I'm a newbie (still) here, and I don't know how to do items (2) and (3) above. My 'cdrecord -version' is:
