I’m running 32-bit Fedora 8 on my laptop. I was getting access errors from Nero Linux, and then couldn’t use the DVD burner with Nero Linux.
I tried the official solution, to modify the /etc/rc.local file by adding this:
chmod o+r+w /dev/sg*
This did not work. After trying several other things, I found that this worked, and it survives on reboot:
chmod a+r+w /dev/sg*
I don’t know if there are any good reasons not to do it this way.
