Still getting the "cdrecord has no permission to open the device" error when trying to burn an iso image to a DVD-RW.

I did yet another clean install of openSUSE 11.2 64 on my desktop computer, did updates, added Nvidia and Packman repos (it's not a repo problem as I tried it several times on a totally clean install), added codecs and stuff as advised by caf.

I updated the DVD drive firmware earlier today, hoping that would help, it did not.

My user is a member of ALL groups.

Drive is an LG GH22NSS50 (sata)

It all works (with the same DVD-RW) under winxp on the same machine.

Is it HAL or something else that blocks permission to devices?

I'm really getting sick to death of this problem, and would be happy just to get rid of anything blocking permissions to the DVD drive.
