Permission Denied to burn/erase DVD RW with DVD+RW tools
Hello everyone,

I'm having problems burning dvds.

I'm using Slack 10.1 with kernel 2.6.10. I'm using the TkDVD frontend for the dvd+RW tools. My dvd is an LG "super multi" dual layer DVD+/-R(W).

I can mount but can't burn or erase.

my /etc/fstab:

/dev/hda3        swap            swap        defaults        0  0
/dev/hda4        /                reiserfs    defaults        1  1
/dev/hda1        /winhd1          ntfs        auto,user,umask=000,ro  1  0
/dev/hda2        /winhd2          ntfs        auto,user,umask=000,ro  1  0
/dev/cdrom      /mnt/cdrom      iso9660    noauto,user,owner,ro  0  0
/dev/hdd        /mnt/dvdrw      auto        nauto,user,owner,rw 0  0
/dev/fd0        /mnt/floppy      auto        noauto,user,owner    0  0
devpts          /dev/pts        devpts      gid=5,mode=620  0  0
proc            /proc            proc        defaults        0  0

Please help!

Welcome to LQ!

You didn't write whether you can write as root (using some CLI utility). If yes, then the solution may be as simple as adding your username to the 'cdrom' group.

Search Linuxquestions for more, this is discussed here many times.

I didn't think of that. Sorry to bother you all... and thanks for your help!
