The users, the Linux people, me, and who else
tried to find out what's wrong with those systems.

But for what ? Make me smarter.
I do not know a single incident where root privileges
made the difference between working and not working
if access permissions to /dev/sgN resp. /dev/srM
If you need to get outmost process priority -
ok, then you need to be superuser. I don't think this
belongs _inside_ the burn program.
The problem in this thread has multiply been verified
to appear for the superuser as well.
It is either a bug in Linux or a peculiarity of
the drive-controller combination which we do not
know yet but which is known to Microsoft or Nero AG.
In any case we should try to help exploring.
It only happens with newer Linux and SATA drives.
Many newer Linuxes with SATA drives work without problems.
There seem to be SATA controller hardware issues involved.

The state of the exploration is that sending
any mode pages 05h fails. Just believe me, for once.
I still hope to find somebody who is willing to
pick up the thread so we can continue trying to find
the reason. (We = experimenter + me + evtl. helpers)
Have a nice day :)
