You didn't say what version of Fedora you were using.
I have three FC5 boxes installed and two of the PC's won't write k3b cd as user only as SU
I have a FC5 Dell Laptop install that will burn cd's as User.
There definily a problem with FC5 , If you can burn cd's as SU, I would just wait until they come up with a update
for K3b and cdrecord. And give it another try

Hello:
Not sure if this will help or not, however the only way I could get it to work was to create a new group named burner and associate that group with the user [System /Administration /Users and Groups /....seems to work for whatever reason. :confused:

When I try to write using k3b a second file to a DVD+RW which already has a file written by ROXIO Creator Classic under Windows XP, I get a message and audio indicating success. However, when I examine the DVD+RW, I see that nothing was written. The debugging output is shown below. Does anyone know the cause of this problem?

My tests indicate that k3b works satisfactorily for writing to a DVD+RW when called from a terminal emulator while logged in as root in a KDE session. However, I could not get it to work satisfactorily in a gnome session.

CD/DVD Creator writes satisfactorily to a DVD+RW in a gnome session if the sub-directory of /media corresponding to the disk is set with the required permission. I used chmod to set the permission to 777 after getting a message that I did not have the permission to write to the disk.
