I have a similar problem in that k3b cannot find
my DVD/CD burner. However I haven't received any
messages about permissions.
On a hunch I started X as root and k3b was then
able to find my hardware. This doesn't really
solve the problem but it was a quick work-around
for me until I figure this out.
Note: I too changed permissions to 666 on
/dev/acd0 and /dev/cd0 to no avail.
Maybe someone with more experience could jump in here?
