This appears to be specific to NeroLINUX, since other disc burning
software uses devices like /dev/cdwriter or /dev/scd* which are
assigned to the console user at login-time.

If you just want a work-around, you could override PAM's
/etc/security/console.perms.d/50-default.perms with your changes:
"man console.perms"
