I would expect that to fail! You never specified a device to write
to! Did you read the manual page??? The man page for cdrecord is a
This is what I use
cdrecord dev=ATA:x,x,x -sao blank=fast -v xx.iso
x,x,x determined by what the below commands return

cdrecord dev=ATA -scanbus (Best as it enables DMA an the burner)
cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus
or cdrecord dev=help whic you got as a message from cdrecord.
Reading your original post i have to assume (bad) that you are using
an IDE burner but I don't see where you said that. I'm not
researching a LG GCE-8320B to find out. You should give all 'related'
info when you have a problem you need help with.

Did you do what this messaged suggested? What did it return?

Odd that your ls does not show any hdc or cdrom. Do you have udev
installed? if so you should be looking for /.dev/hdc (I believe that
right but do not have udev installed here.
Now I am more comfused. Where or what did you try these on, many
kernel compiles or one at a time in /etc/modules or ??
I suggest you start with the manual page, then you might go to the
archives for the past two months and read about all the
problems/solutions to the "my burner doesn't work" questions.
