Try

chmod 666 /dev/sr0

as root and then see if Nero works as a normal user.

Just curious, what is the advantage of using Nero for Linux rather than K3b ?
What does it offer more ?

What if you don't have KDE installed? I'm a straight up GTK/Gnome user so that is the advantage of Nero over K3B for me....

You can try also xcdroast and graveman if you're looking for cdburning software using Gtk (I think graveman is more up-to-date).

Links here: http://www.linuxlinks.com/Software/C...ME/index.shtml
You may find packages for them on: http://www.linuxpackages.net

Anyone noticed how CD/DVD-writers seems to be /dev/sr0 or /dev/sg0 these days? They were always /dev/scd0 back when I were a lad!

I recently had the problem with k3b; it couldn't use the CDRW unless you're root.. I noticed today that my everyday-user name was not in the cdrom group.. I edited /etc/group and added my username to cdrom group, now it works fine...

Reminder: Don't install your OS so quickly and carelessly...
