"The program can't find any usable optical drives."

Post by c.d.dickey@gmail.com »

I'm using Linux. When I start the program, I get this message...."The program can't find any usable optical drives."
So, I made a link from my dvd drive which is designated '/dev/sr0' to /dev/dvd' and still no go. So, I also added links to /dev/sr0 as /dev/cdrom, /dev/cdrw, and /dev/dvdrw. Still getting the same message. I rebooted after each of these changes, just to be sure. What am I missing?

Permission problem? 'chmod 666 /dev/sr0' ?

Probably you need to load the SCSI generic (sg) module.
