    Default Suse 11.1 kde 4 unable to see blank dvd

    Been trying to burn an iso to a blank dvd. When ever i insert the blank dvd, suse doesnt see it. I tried opening k3b and it just says select a burning medium. I looked under the config settings and it says no on dvd write for the drive. This drive does do dvd burning, i have done it before but why cant i now. Is there a codec im missing?

    thanks

    You don't need any codec for burning data CD/DVDs. Post the output of the following:
    Code:
    id
    openSUSE 12.3 (x86_64) with Kernel 3.7.10-1.16-desktop and KDE 4.11.2 on MacBook Pro
    Latest MS Windows version used: Win95

    Here is my id output. I think you should add "cdrom" group, in order to make k3b to work.
    Code:
    uid=1000(syam) gid=100(users) groups=6(disk),16(dialout),20(cdrom),33(video),100(users),112(vboxusers)
    After adding, you should log out and then, in.

    I don't know if you're still having the blank dvd problem, but I was having it also and was racking my brain trying to solve it through the terminal and all that line command junk.

    Turns out all I had to do was go into Install Software and update my K3b codecs. Worth a shot
