Installing DVD-writer


I need some hints about how to get my DVD-writer working on DebianSarge.

DVD-writer: DVD+/-R/RW Model TS-H552

hdc: CD-ROM 56X/AKH, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hdd: TSSTcorpCD/DVDW TS-H552B, ATAPI CD/DVD-ROM drive
hdd: ATAPI 48X DVD-ROM DVD-R CD-R/RW drive, 2048kB Cache, UDMA(33)

Kernel 2.6.8-2-386

I've installed K3B , dvd+rw-tool and all the recomended packages....

My real problem is this one.....:

"K3b did not find a suitable writer. You will only be able to create an image"

The 2.6.8 kernel is damned, have you tried starting k3b as root?

I had a similar problem before, not exactly sure what I did, but it was a permission thing. I had to have k3b setup for normal user group to access the drives and write to them. It was in k3b, and it wasn't just adding the drive to the list, wouldn't let me as root either, try looking at some more of the options on the prefrences. But I fixed it when I added normal group access to be able to write to my drives. (Sorry its so vague, switched to gnome at the moment :P, I'll fire up my old box with kde on it later)

you installed the right things but you still need cdrdao :-) you can just apt-get it. also your kernel has no problem but go for the 2.6.8-2-686 still...
Good luck!
