Yes, it does.

Notwithstanding, I suppose it should work as user and not only as root.
I found that this happens because the CD is currently (auto)mounted. From nautilus the only option is eject. When you put the disc back in, it gets mounted again :~{

Some kind folks mentioned gnome-umount:
# gnome-umount -d /dev/cdrw
then use your writing tools (eg k3b...)
