You did use a deprecated/uintentional dev= parameter.
There have been several reports in the net that cdrecord dev=/dev/sr1
does not work while the dev=b,t,l syntax works fine. This is related to
bugs in the sr highlevel driver that is completely unneeded for CD/DVD writing.
BTW: using -vvv is not recommended (even for bug reports).
Use cdrecord -v and in case there are questions run additional commands,
