Question Trouble burning CD's

I'm having trouble burning CD's. First I tried gToaster, then I tried with the command line using cdrecord, but neither worked. Basically, I click 'record' from gToaster but it doesn't do anyting. I really don't know what to try, I did 'cdrecord -scanbus' from the shell and this was my o/p:

[root@localhost javi]# cdrecord -scanbus

Linux sg driver version: 3.1.24

I tried gtoaster once and could never get it to work. I've had the best luck using k3b. It just works and configures better than xcdroast, eroaster, and gtoaster.

I finally tried doing it in the shell and it tells me:

Error trying to open /dev/scd0 exclusively ... retrying in 1 second.
bailing out

Not sure what this means.

Also, I had to do this as root. If I want to record as any user, can i just change the permissions/group for that file?
