    Regular user using the DVD drive


    I use ubuntu 12.04. For a regular(unprivileged) user to be able to use the DVD writer on my system, will I have to add him to the cdrom group? If yes, is this needed even for burning ubuntu ISO images to CD ?

    I think that's right (that is, yes for both questions). However, when I did some research to verify the information, I was unable to find anything in the Ubuntu online docs which documents the purpose of each of the groups created by the installation. It would be nice if such documentation exists if some kind soul could give us a pointer to it. Thanks!
