Hi there!

Seem to be having an issue with blank DVD and CD-R's. Ubuntu doesn't pick them up nor do they show in K3b or Brasero. I have tried force mounting and the drive just seems to spin up then do nothing.

wodim returns:

wodim: No write mode specified.
wodim: Assuming -tao mode.
wodim: Future versions of wodim may have different drive dependent defaults.
wodim: Operation not permitted. Warning: Cannot raise RLIMIT_MEMLOCK limits.
Device was not specified. Trying to find an appropriate drive...
Detected CD-R drive: /dev/cdrw
Using /dev/cdrom of unknown capabilities
Device type : Removable CD-ROM
Version : 5
Response Format: 2
Capabilities :
Vendor_info : 'TSSTcorp'
Identification : 'CDRWDVD TS-H493B'

Using generic SCSI-3/mmc CD-R/CD-RW driver (mmc_cdr).
