Description of problem:
It appears that users do not have access to the device, burning as root however does work so the hardware is fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Jörg Schilling 2009-03-09 17:58:18 EDT
Solution: do not use wodim as it is also inconflict 
with GPL and Copyright law.

The original cdrecord


installs suid root and it is well known that 
you need root privileges in order to do many of 
the tasks that are implemented in cdrecord.

The people behind wodim however deny the need for root
