My CD Burner is an ATA device and represented as /dev/hdc. When I call
'cdrecord dev=ATA -scanbus' I get the following output:

So it looks like 'cdrecord -scanbus' does not scan the ATA interface and
thus ignores the /dev/hd* devices?

I still don't see the need to populate /dev with SCSI related device
nodes when there is no SCSI device in my system.
