   A while ago the switch to cdrkit was made.

 $ ll /usr/bin/cdrecord
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 5 2007-04-24 08:30 /usr/bin/cdrecord -> 

   My Plextor has long varied between, usable as user, but with the 
highrisk of buffer underruns' warning ... to refusin to burn cept 
as root with cdrecord.  CL using aliases, No GUI.  Since the change 
to wodim, only root can burn.   http://www.cdrkit.org/

   From 'man wodim'....

"In any case, the user running wodim needs read and write access to 
the particular device file on a Linux system. It is recommended to 
be  root  or  install the application as suid-root, because certain 
versions of Linux (kernel) limit the set of SCSI commands allowed 
for non-root users.  Even  if  usage  without root  identity  is 
possible in many cases, some device drivers still may fail,        
show unexplainable problems and generally the problems become 
harder to debug.  The  risk  for  buffer-underruns is also 
increased. See the PROCESS SCHEDULING PRIORITY section below for 
more details."
