    I had a similar problem with KONCD and I emailed my distro support. They couldnt get it to work either. ???

    First, make sure that your cd is mounted. Type "mount" and you will get a list of mounted file systems.

    Second, if you're cd is mounted, what dir is it mounted to? The program may be using a differenct directory to look for the cd, therefore you will get errors saying "cd not found".

    when you burn a cd, you don't mount the cd,
    make sure that you have the correct device set as your burner, something like /dev/scd0, and that the scsi ids are correctly setup.

    We need to start by finding out a few things first.

    What cdwriter do you have? IDE? SCSI?

    What does this show:


    ll /dev/cdrom*
