Ubuntu Linux: CD-Record Has No Permission To Open Device

If you are receiving common Linux error: cdrecord has no permission to open the device:

  • Open Terminal
  • Type: sudo chmod 777 /dev/scd0
  • Replace “/dev/scd0” with your device

Remember: chmod 777  grants full permission to a folder. The 777 mask indicates that read, write, and execute permission given to all users.
