Correct, but it does not make sense at all to try wodim.
There are just too many people who have problems with it and  
it is a well known fact that the wodim "maintainers" did remove
important code that is needed to find and flag problems.

There is no need to know this.
Cdrecord deals with the deficits of the Linux SCSI address schemes....

I did see "wodim" on a friends IBM-laptop completely unable to 
talk to the drive. After upgrading to cdrecord, everything
did work out of the box. It just does not make sense to even think
about wodim. 

If the original cdrecord also has problems with this drive, it is simple
to find out more but you cannot use wodim even for searching for the problem.
If is highly probable that cdrecord just work out of the box with the drive.

So let me repeat my first advise:

Upgrade to a recent cdrtools
