Problem getting k3b to recognize the CD burner.

Hi

I have the following CDRW/DVD combo drive :

cdrecord -scanbus

NOTE: this version of cdrecord is an inofficial (modified) release of
cdrecord
and thus may have bugs that are not present in the original version.
Please send bug reports and support requests to

The original author should not be bothered with problems of this
version.

Linux sg driver version: 3.5.31
Using libscg version 'schily-0.8'.

Entries from /dev :

brw-rw---- 1 root cdrom 11, 0 Mar 23 16:49 /dev/scd0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root cdrom 4 May 4 08:52 /dev/sr0 -> scd0
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root cdrom 4 Sep 15 14:08 /dev/cdrom -> scd0

From /etc/fstab :

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,user,ro 0 0

And I do have hdc=ide-scsi in my /boot/grub/menu.lst (appended to the kernel
line).

When I try to list devices in k3b configure>devices, it shows only the
reader at (0,0,0). When I try to add the writer at /dev/scd0, I get the
error :

Could not find an additional device at /dev/scd0

An attempt to burn an iso image fails as the "start" button is deactivated
and no burning device is selectable.

I might mention at this stage that xcdroast works perfectly.

I have worked with k3b in the past (it was a different kernel, a different
time) with this hardware (a moot point since xcdroast works fine).

Any suggestions to get k3b to work would be welcome. I greatly prefer its
UI.

Thanks.
