Unable to add myself to optical group

First, I just want to say that I've read both of these pages in an attempt to fix this problem:
http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=34092
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Groups

Basically, I was having problems using k3b, in that it gave me this message every time I tried to start it up:

/dev/sr0 resolved to /dev/sr0
(K3bDevice::Device) could not open device /dev/sr0 for reading
                    (Permission denied)
could not open device /dev/sr0 (Permission denied)
/dev/sr0 resolved to /dev/sr0
(K3bDevice::Device) could not open device /dev/sr0 for reading
                    (Permission denied)
could not open device /dev/sr0 (Permission denied)
Devices:
------------------------------
kdecore (KAction): WARNING: KActionCollection::operator+=(): function is severely deprecated.

To fix this, I tried both methods of adding myself to the optical group, usermod and gpasswd. Both methods say that I've been added.

 [alex@Craptop ~]$ sudo gpasswd -a alex optical
Adding user alex to group optical

When I type 'groups', however, optical doesn't show up, and k3b still gives me a permission denied error whenever I start it up, unless I'm under the root account. Anyone have any ideas?

You have to log out and back in again for group changes to take effect.
