I haven't been following this thread so I may repeat something or miss
something but basically you need to check:
Your running kernel is compiled with the "device atapicam" option
because AFAIK k3b only works with scsi.
I have the following lines in this computers /etc/devfs.conf
link acd0 cdrom
link acd0 dvd
link acd0 rdvd
link acd1 cdrom1
link acd1 dvd1
link acd1 rdvd1
link acd0 cd0
link acd1 cd1
perm acd0 0777
perm acd1 0777
perm cd0 0777
perm cd1 0777
Maybe over kill but works great and I, too, was a command line cd
burner for years but k3b brought me the light. IMO, it is great.
I am running
although on my laptop amd64 I think I am using cdrtools-devel.
I hope this helps a bit. I haven't found a machine, since I started
burning dvd's a couple of years ago that k3b didn't work beautifully.
