k3b can't find burn group


Since I updated to 10rc1 k3b has not been working. I don't quite understand the program so I'll try to explain my problem.

When I try to burn there is no device in the burn menu. So I checked with k3bsetup and the devices were there but under readers (saying 'Write CD/RWs: yes' ) and not writers. If I tried to click apply I only got : 'there is no group burning', even though it says on the top 'Use burning group: burning'. So is that group missing or malplaced??

I tried to add /dev/cdroms/cdrom0 under writer but got the message :
'Could not find additional device at /dev/cdroms/cdrom0'.

I tried the software forum but got no clear solution - so I thought I'd try the mandy forum

Well, maybe... The chmod thing didn't change anything but I don't understand how they:

I added my user to that group
I think that might be the problem but I'm in a new territory (for me) so I'd appreciate if you know how to that...

I went into System Settings/Users and Groups, clicked on the "Group" tab, selected the right group and added my user to it.
When you're using the gui, it's pretty self-explanatory.
