Question Knoppix cd-writer problems


hi, i have just done a # knd-hdinstall of knoppix 3.3 - all seems fine.
i am wanting to use k3b to burn some cds but it says it can't find a cd writer. When i go to k3b options / devices / add device and try to add a cd writer at /dev/cdrom/ it says it can't find an additional device, can anyone here help me with what to do?
btw -
# mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
works fine
