You sure you have the right permissions on your cd burning device? Can
you duplicate this while running as root?
My guess is that you've only got read access to the device node or
something along those lines. And the only fix I'll be able to give you
will just make libburn refuse to use the device at all when it's
configured like that.
I think 2.6.8 added some command filtering stuff to prevent malicious
users from being able to destroy drives.
It looks like the command to unlock the drive door isn't allowed. Amusing
because it appears to have been ok to lock it in the first place.
oh, and I think "thread apply all bt full" is what I'm looking for - but
I don't need any more info here. This is most likely a device permission
problem or a kernel bug.
