I just tryed installing k3b and I did follow all the instruction from 
The problem now is that my burner is detected as a cd-rom read only device.

First of all:

_ I'm using FreeBSD 6-STABLE; I followed the instruction for FreeBSD 
5.x, since that's what I was presented with; there are no instructions 
for 6, but I guess those are good;

_ here are my relevant dmesg:

> sym0: <895> port 0xd800-0xd8ff mem 0xd5202000-0xd52020ff,0xd5201000-0xd5201fff irq 15 at device 10.0 on pci0
> sym0: Tekram NVRAM, ID 7, Fast-40, LVD, parity checking
> sym0: [GIANT-LOCKED]
 > ...
> cd1 at sym0 bus 0 target 6 lun 0
> cd1: <YAMAHA CRW8824S 1.0a> Removable CD-ROM SCSI-2 device
> cd1: 20.000MB/s transfers (20.000MHz, offset 15)
> cd1: Attempt to query device size failed: NOT READY, Medium not present - tray closed
> cd0 at sym0 bus 0 target 4 lun 0
> cd0: <PLEXTOR CD-ROM PX-40TS 1.12> Removable CD-ROM SCSI-2 device
> cd0: 20.000MB/s transfers (20.000MHz, offset 15)
> cd0: cd present [207330 x 2048 byte records]

_ camcontrol devlist gives:

 > <SEAGATE ST39205LW 0105>           at scbus0 target 0 lun 0 (da0,pass0)
 > <PLEXTOR CD-ROM PX-40TS 1.12>      at scbus0 target 4 lun 0 (cd0,pass1)
 > <IOMEGA ZIP 100 E.08>              at scbus0 target 5 lun 0 (da1,pass2)
 > <YAMAHA CRW8824S 1.0a>             at scbus0 target 6 lun 0 (cd1,pass3)

Notice everything is true SCSI.

K3B sees the two following readonly devices:


Obviously the first shoud be listed in Writer Devices...

BTW cdrecord & co. work fine.

Any hint?

  bye & Thanks
