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.
