K3B only writes to CDR under root

I am attempting to use K3B, which when logged in as root is a teriffic little program.  However, when I log in as an ordinary user I not longer have the ability to write to CDR.  The "Write CDs:" option says no, but under root it says yes.

would you check the /etc/fstab file for your cdwriter device to be enabled for read and write for users?

in the options column enable the device for read+write like "rw" and add users, and also u can enable only for your user by adding the userid of your user.

This is the line that I have in FSTAB that refers to my burner:

/dev/cdrom              /mnt/cdrom              udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

How should this line be modified?

What is confusing to me is that I have the ability to write to DVD-R and CD/RWs.

You need to run k3b-setup to add users. K3b manages its own users - only root is allowed burn by default.

Actually it ended up being the kernel version.  I was running 2.6.8.1, which broke K3B.  When I upgraded to 2.6.9 my ability to write to CDR was restored.  Thank you for your assistance.
