Changing the dvd read/writer permissions


I am running Debian and when attempting to save a file to the DVD I cannot because the permisions are only set to read how do I set them to write. Nautilus allows me to see the permisions momentarily allows me to tick the write permision but then errors with not allowed.

Hi,

The device will be handled through a application GUI like 'k3b' or cdrecord with a frontend on Linux. If you prefer 'cdrecord' can be initiated via the 'cli'.

You should read 'Linux is Not Windows'.

This link and others are available from 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
