Burning CDs

I have a CW068D ATAPI CD-R/RW cd writer and a cdrom that is a seperate drive. It reads cds fine and can install software from it. Ubuntu even knows when a blank disk is in the drive. The system hangs when I try to burn a cd. Both Nautilus 2.10.0 and K3B have the same problem. The problem with burning did not happen under Windows just before this. I installed a cao module for K3B to work. K3B did not come with Ubuntu. I installed that seperatly, and I found the cao module for it to work. What can I do to get the cd burner working? I have took Ubuntu off and reinstalled it. Whenever i try to burn a cd, I get an hourglass that never goes away, the mouse can not move, and I have to logout and log back in to get Ubuntu working again. I have tried cdrecord from a terminal. I am using the latest version, Ubuntu 5.04. Please help.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Please continue here Thanks. Mod note: Had you not already reposted the question in the Ubuntu forum, I would have moved this thread, but moving it now would create a duplicate post situation. -- J.W.
