Exclamation DVD+rw??

Anyone know how to go about setting up a DVD+RW with Slackware?
I installed K3B but it picked up my DVD+RW as a cd reader, I tried to tell it to goto /dev/hdc
but it wont take it. The drive wont Play/Read/Burn anything, its almost completly inactive.

thanks in advance

I got it up and running, I relised that I was using an old version of k3b. The newer version found dvdrw no problem, this then seemed to become system wide( two disk drives come up, both can be mounted)
