Thanks for the help, got it to compile fine now, however, keep getting

Initializing library...Success
libburn_test: libburn/sg.c:247: sg_issue_command: Assertion `err != -1' 
Scanning for devices...
Program has been terminated receiving signal 9 (Killed)

Is this something i am doing incorrectly, or a bug with libburn ?
