I wanted to use k3b, but I do not wish to switch to root everytime. I wasn't sure what the problem was on getting the devices to be able to be viewed.
Woohoo, the chmod 644 works great
Thanks a bajillion!
As for your problem with mkisofs, after you added your user to that group, did you log out and back in? I'd say it's pretty safe chmodding mkisofs, however, you should have no problems with adding yourself to that group and then running the app... As long as you've logged out and back in, I'd think it would update your group.
