I had the same problem, k3bsetup2 and chmod 4750 didn't solve the
problem because there was another /dev/sg entry with bad permissions.
k3bsetup didn't detect this entry:

crw-rw---- 1 root root  21, 0 2006-06-09 20:10 /dev/sg0
crw-rw-rw- 1 root cdrom 21, 1 2006-06-09 20:10 /dev/sg1

Then, doing cdrecord -scanbus, the output was:

Error trying to open /dev/sg0 exclusively (Device or resource busy)... retrying in 1 second.

Error trying to open /dev/sg0 exclusively (Device or resource busy)... retrying in 1 second.
cdrecord: Device or resource busy. Cannot open '/dev/sg0'. Cannot open SCSI driver.

For me the solution was simple: I deleted /dev/sg0 :)
