I don't think this is a hardware problem, so it goes here.

No idea why this isn't working.

Kernel sees the (ordinary - not something unusual) drive:

Code:

May 11 22:55:52 system kernel: [    0.604754] scsi 1:0:0:0: CD-ROM            TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-H653G  LW02 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5
May 11 22:55:52 system kernel: [    0.610559] sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 40x/40x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray
May 11 22:55:52 system kernel: [    0.610560] cdrom: Uniform CD-ROM driver Revision: 3.20
May 11 22:55:52 system kernel: [    0.610635] sr 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0
May 11 22:55:52 system kernel: [    0.610678] sr 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg1 type 5


User is in the cdrom group ("mplayer cdda://" works fine).

Dbus and consolekit are running.

But k3b says it can't find any optical drives.

I don't use KDE, but on the odd chance k3b uses udev markings, check if 'udevadm info' shows the drive as properly marked as such.

I have the new linux-3.9, and did for to be sure disable this new feature:
"SATA Zero Power Optical Disc Drive (ZPODD) support"

# zcat /proc/config.gz |grep SATA_ZPODD
# CONFIG_SATA_ZPODD is not set

Still using the default stable (3.7.10-r1 for amd64). I will look out for that option when I encounter it.

I'm using the same kernel with my burner on /dev/sr0 and have no problems with k3b.

Did you custom compile your kernel, or is it a genkernel? If manually compiled, you may very well have missed a setting to enable this. If a genkernel, then I'm stumped too.


Have you tried other burner programs to see if it is unique to k3b?

Yes, it is a custom kernel, but given that other programs have no problem accessing the optical drive, I doubt it is a kernel configuration problem.

No, but I just tried plugging in a usb flash drive, and I get the same behavior - kde refuses to acknowledge its existence, but the system sees it fine, and I have no problem mounting it as root and accessing it.

I'm running into the same problem. CD/DVDs mount fine but k3b doesnt see optical drive. My optical is a SATA. I'm running 3.8.13. Anybody ever figure this one out?

same here. All optical drives have gone in k3b. cdrecord can still see the drives:

so, got my devices back. I took a look here:
http://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=153&t=111168&sid=a4072771f4d6e64dc35f3307c2eebace
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-858965-highlight-.html

Code:
$ solid-hardware list
$ udisks --enumerate

did not show my devices / threw errors
Code:
* added consolekit to use flags in make.conf
* emerge --update --newuse @system / @world
* emerge udisks (added "sys-fs/udisks cryptsetup" to packages.use - don't think this use flag is really necessary, but since I use encrypted devices ...)
* emerge dbus
* restarted dbus
* done

This solved the issue for me
Code:
 sudo chmod u+s /usr/libexec/dbus-daemon-launch-helper


No idea why it wasn't u+s in the first place, it has to be.

I experienced this issue, but it wasn't due to dbus or consolekit/polkit.

I had compiled myself a new kernel and when I went to burn a dvd, it said it couldn't find optical drive.
The problem was one of two things:

- I had enabled apparmor in the kernel without installing the apparmor packages.
- I had enabled the "Restrict unprivileged access to the kernel syslog" option

I removed both options from my kernel, recompiled, and my drive was found again. Noob-ish mistake on my part.
