Problems with External USB 2.0 DVD/CD RW in Fedora Core 2
Here's the gist of it....
1. FC2 recognises device and mounts it at /dev/scd0 (with a link to /dev/cdrom1).
2. cdrecord works fine under root mode, haven't tried with dvds as yet.
3. When same opration in K3B is tried (as cdrecord), it returns the error:
"cdrecord has no permission to open this device" for normal user
"failed (error 500)" for root
and asks me to run k3bsetup, but I'm using the K3B install that came with the FC2 distro, so it doesn't come with k3bsetup.
Now, apart from installing FC3, installing a new k3b, or any other installation, or going back to WinDoze:
a) has anyone had this problem before?
b) what should be done to fix it? An explanation as to why would also be good for others who have similar problems in the future.
Thanks for your help.
