Bit of a problem accessing cd/dvd


Im trying to use "mencoder" to copy a dvd to a hard drive. If I run "mencoder" from a konsole as user it fails to mount the dvd; While logged in as user, when the dvd is inserted into the drive, automount failes.

If I run "mencoder" from a "root" konsole, everything runs without any problem;

I'm certain this must be a permissions problem, but have not been able to find out how to fix it.

Can anyone help?

Gary

well in a lot of distros you can add the user in question to the cdrom or dvd group in /etc/group. You'll most likely need to re-login in order for the group change to take effect.

estabroo, thankyou;

I used to know that, but somehow the knowledge got archived and the archive got dumped into the bit bucket!

Thanks again
Gary
