I am recording TV-broadcastings with a conventional DVD-recorder and I want
to edit the VOB-files.
I have problems copying the files from DVD to PC.
On my computer the DVD-drive is on /dev/hdb, from where the automounter is
starting correctly and I can play the VOB's with Kaffeine/Xine.
Trying to open the DVD on automounter's start within a new window, Konqueror
tries to open from: system:/media/hdb , but produces an error:
access denied on /media/cdrom0
How can I mount those DVDs without being root and within KDE?
Thanks and regards
Check if the user you want to access the cdrom is in the cdrom group.
You can do this by grep-ing the group file.
$ grep -i cdrom /etc/group
It should return something like this
If your user is not listed then you need to add the user to the cdrom
group. This as to be done with the root user account.
# adduser username cdrom
