Re: CD Writer Issues

Hi. Brand new debian installation.
Sarge (stable)? What kernel?
I'm a little puzzled that I can't
seem to burn a CD. On boot the /var/log/messages confirms that there's a
DVDRW on hdc and a CDRW on hdd. Yet when I go to the File Manager-Go-CD
Creator, drop a file into the burn:/// window, then hit Write To Disk
things are not looking like I'd expect them to. First, the Write Disk To
dropdown only gives me one choice: File Image. So moving ahead with that
one choice writes and .iso file to the hard drive. But I then try to
write, by dragging, that .iso file to the CD-ROM 2:cdrom1 icon and it
comes up with a message "the destination disk is read-only." This, with
a CDRW in the drive. Same results with the DVD writer drive.
I think I'm following the process outlined in the Help file but not
getting the expected results. It's probably something simple and I guess
maybe I''ve been staring at it too long.
Anyone have any ideas what's missing.
Can you do it as root? Is your user in the cdrom group? Did you try
k3b? (The first time you run it, it configure a few things..)
