Re: k3b incorrectly identifies scsi r/w drive as read-only -- how to change?

 k3b must be reading this from somewhere, but where? The drive is r,w is
 fstab.

I don't have access to my laptop (where I recently dealt with this), but
/etc/devfs.conf (i think) has places where you can set the permission to
devices.  I believe I did 0666 (read/write to all) for acd0, cdrom0, pass0,
and perhaps 1 other.  After that (and manually setting perms to /dev/list)
I was able to use k3b without being root.

Hope this helps.

I had done that. I can access the drive, but it is still not being correctly 
recognized as a writer.

What happens when you run k3b as root (just to test)

Also, what are the permissions on
(assuming the writer is the first cd device)
/dev/cd0
/dev/acd0
/dev/pass0
