k3b does not recognize my drives


I just reformatted my system and compiled from stage 1 (Gentoo), I have everything I need installed, and I compiled my own kernel 2.6.9 (I ahve been compiling my own kernel 5 years now)

I have never had problems with k3b before but now I am.

I enter k3bsetup as root and it only shows one of my drives, and it is a reader.
I tried manually pointing to the devices (both /dev/srX and /dev/scsi/hostX/peth/to/cd)
it says there is no device at that location.

gtoaster detects the drives fine.

here is my cdrecord -scanbus output:

Linux sg driver version: 3.5.31
Using libscg version 'schily-0.8'.

2,7,0 207) *

the second 2 drives listed are cd burners.

K3B reccomends you stick with 2.6.7 for now. They say that it still doesn't quite work with 2.6.9 (2.6.8+ screwed up CD Burning)
