K3b doesn't detec any optical writer (DVD+/-RW)

I’m unable to write CD/DVD or perform any writable operation using K3b in openSUSE 11.1

In the setting there is:

Readonly drives: none
Writer devices: none

Adding manually /dev/sr0 doesn’t help

Drive is ready. I can mount and copy files withoiut any problems

I am no expert, but same thing here cured by ensuring I was in the cdrom group.
via Yast->Security and Users->User and Group Management
Give it a try for quick fix

That worked! rotfl!

This is quite stupid thing, but after I added my user to cdrom group, now I can access DVD-RW drive and write discs

Thanks for help, blue_lobster!
