Can't Burn as user with K3b


I have my user in the cdrom group which has always allowed me to burn with a user account with no problems, but I just tried making an audio CD and burning an ISO as user with K3b and they both failed saying I don't have the correct permission for cdrecord. If I run k3b as root everything works fine. This is probably an easy fix but I thought I would post here while I search around for a solution.

Thanks in advance.

I think you can run setup from the Tools menu in K3b. It will ask for the root password and change the permissions for you.

Hmm, We'll I just booted in to windows to burn an ISO and it failed there too, I'm starting to wonder if its my Burner or maybe I got a bad batch of DVD+R's. Trying to figure it out now.

I tried a many different combinations of disc, DVD-R, DVD+R, CD-R, CD-RW and it keeps failing, I just bought this burner about 6 weeks ago but I think its safe to say at this point its a lemon. Time to upgrade I guess.

The last time I burned a ISO with K3b it returned the same error and told me I had to set up a burning group. So I logged on as root, fired up K3b again, and under "Settings" and then "Setup System permissions" created a "burn" group. It suggested "burning," but I changed it to "burn" and it was accepted. I then edited the /etc/group file and added my user name to the "burn" group (without the quotes marks, of course). That solved the problem.
