Hmmm....just today, used Nero 4 on this laptop to test new DVD drive, worked perfectly with openSUSE 11.1. I did a fresh install of openSUSE 11.2 and just installed Nero 4. Nero cannot find the physical device. System has it (sr0) and uses it without problems. I assume it's a permissions issue, but am not clear as to how to make Nero "see" this device. Also, since this IDE device was recognized before with openSUSE 11.1, I wonder what has changed with openSUSE 11.2 to make Nero confused?
Thanks in advance for any advice on this.
