SuSE 9.2 and DVD-RW media

Hello all,

I've reviewed quite a few threads on the subject but still having problems working with DVD-RW media.

Oddly enough, if I'm logged in as root I am able to access DVD-RW media the same as a hard drive ( I was able to write to it directly from OpenOffice and copy files to it from Konqueror.) But not so successful logged in as a user.... (both devices handle rw media).

My fstab entry for my DVD-rom and CD-rom are as follows:

/dev/cdrecorder /media/cdrecorder subfs fs=cdfss,rw,procuid,nosuid,nodev,exec,iocharset=utf8 0 0

/dev/dvdram /media/dvdram auto rw,users,umask=000 0 0

The first device "cdrecorder" is the typical line used on both as setup by Yast. The second line "dvdram" is the modified line which enabled "root" to be able to read and write to the media.

Once the bugs are worked out for the DVD-RW issue I'll do the same for the CD-RW media (it's just a reminder of the original settings for now).

Thanks in advance!
