Unhappy Burner problem in SuSE 8.2

In Suse 8.2 I find that my cdrom burner software(K3b) will not see the Device at all..It will however see it in ROOT just fine.Question is how do I change either permissions and or ownership from root to User..I tried to launch K3b from the terminal using "SUX" and it will not start..I want to be able to burn a cdrom from user and not have to go to root..

PS In /media/cdrom (my cdrom drive link is owned by user)
/media/cdrom11 (my burner link is owned by root)could that be it?

Smile Found it!!

Went into the Suse news group and someone had the same problem and a poster suggested.."chmod 777 /dev/sr*"
It worked for the poster on the NG and for me too..K3b now sees my cdrom burner in user ...Hooray!!
