I have suse 8.2 and use grub. I have dvd drive and cdrw. When I try to use K3B, I get an eror message syaing I need to make my drive use scsi emulation. Inside K3B it only recognizes my cdrw drive. I am able to burn files to it with no problem. Of course I can't burn a cd because it does not recognize my dvd drive. My dvd drive is recognize by kde and I can play dvds with no problems. I have been looking at past messages and I think I need to add to my menu.1st file in /boot/grub/. Here is what there is from it.

Thanks for your help. I am using grub but it is almost the samething as lilo. I put hdc=ide-scsi in my /boot/grub/menu.1st file right before the hdd=ide-scsi and it worked! Just one line of code! When I tried to run K3B I did get some errors about no cdrdao driver but I was able to figure it out. It turn out to be very simple.
