I had the same problem, even after invoking chmod 666 on all it still would

Make sure you have enough permissions to cdrecord !
To make this, type at the console 'as root':

chown root /usr/bin/cdrecord
chmod 4711 /usr/bin/cdrecord

'/usr/bin/cdrecord' is the default path. When you don't know, where
cdrecord is located, type 'whereis cdrecord' ! Then you have the complete
path of them !
