    Default K3b is unable to detect my CD/DVD drive


    Hi,

    I recently upgraded from a CD burner to a DVD burner and was absolutely
    delighted when I found out that K3b
    burned DVDs as easily as CDs. I didn't have to configure
    anything. That was with SuSE 9.3.
    I just installed 11.1 and now K3b is unable to detect my
    CD/DVD drive.
    yast uses /dev/sr0. I tried adding that as device, as well as
    /dev/cdrw, /dev/dvdrw, and /dev/dvd, to no avail.

    Hardware information tells me the following:
    DVD A DH20A4H (/dev/sr0)
    Driver: pata_via

    I could use some help here.

    Thanks in advance, Stephan

    Thanks, that helped indeed.
    I had started it using the application launcher and I didn't see a hint
    that this might be a permission problem. After I read what you pointed
    me to, I started it on the command line and saw the rather detailed
    error messages. I'm now burning as root, and will change permissions
    afterwards.

    Thanks again, Stephan
