Default K3B not finding writer.

When I start up K3B, it reports:

Quote:
No CD/DVD writer found.
K3b did not find an optical writing device in your system. Thus, you will not be able to burn CDs or DVDs. However, you can still use other K3b features like audio track extraction or audio transcoding or ISO9660 image creation.
Running cdrercord -scanbus shows:
Code:
max@~/Music: sudo cdrecord -scanbus

The Pioneer mounts from /dev/acd0 as /dvdburner -
Code:
/dev/acd0               /dvdburner      cd9660  ro,noauto       0       0
In loader.conf, I have atapi support enabled:
Code:
max@~/Music: cat /boot/loader.conf
snd_hda_load="YES"
loader_logo="beastiebw"
nvidia_load="YES"
hw.ata.atapi_dma="1"
atapicam_load="YES"
Some of you may have seen/helped with my issues regarding my optical drives before. I can't see what I'm doing wrong - can't see the trees for my wooden skull...
Would creating a kernel with the atapi support be advantageous, or would this also fail?

I've attached my sysctl and dmesg.

Search the forums. There are several threads, and even a how-to, for getting k3b to work as non-root users.

Search was the first thing I did. Using k3B as a string...

EDIT - however, I have now spotted a thread regarding burning cds which I'll investigate. http://www.daemonforums.org/showthread.php?t=126

Hrm, seems the search function is next to useless when it comes to k3b (or dns, or nfs, or any other three letter words). I know there are several threads on here with detailed instructions for using k3b as non-root user, including devd.conf/devfs.rules entries that need to be added. If I can find any of these via manual roaming around, I'll post link.

Ah, there we go. It's even in the Guides section, like I said it would be.

Thanks. Imagine 3 letter acronyms/names causing a tech search grief. The IT world would be on it's knees...
