Hellow everybody:

You need to add your user to cdrom group. Read about groups in Linux.
Code: Select all
id user_name

will show you to what group you belong.

Do a google search for mounting cdrom, this topic may be useful:

I added mount point for cdrom in my fstab
Code: Select all
#cdwriter
/dev/cdrom /media/cdrom udf,iso9660 rw,noauto,user,exec,utf8 0 0


/media/cdrom is my mount point. If doesn't exist I create cdrom folder in media folder and check permissions.
Code: Select all
ls -l /media/
drwxr-xr-x   2 root    root     4096 gru  9  2014 cdrom

And than I add it to fstab. If you don't add it to fstab probably you will need to mount it every time manually

Hi,
First I run this commands in order to change the owner of the optical disk
jochoa@jochoapc:~$ ls -ls /dev/sr0
0 brw-rw----+ 1 root cdrom 11, 0 sep 27 12:04 /dev/sr0
jochoa@jochoapc:~$ sudo chown jochoa:cdrom /dev/sr0
jochoa@jochoapc:~$ ls -ls /dev/sr0
0 brw-rw----+ 1 jochoa cdrom 11, 0 sep 27 12:04 /dev/sr0

Then I installed brasero from discover and I could write the file in the CD
Obviously I remove k3b forever.
Regards,
