This line indicates that cdrecord looked at the identity of the device
... then gave up and found no suitable driver.

Things to check:
1. It's a SCSI device. (this should be true, since USB mass storage is
2. You have the "generic" SCSI device driver loaded. (sg module, or built-in)
3. The "generic" SCSI device node exists for the device. (/dev/sg*,
don't know with DEVFS, but it should just work(tm) )
4. Your CD Burner is actually supported at all. (check the homepage of
cdrecord, search the net, etc.)
5. Force a driver with the 'cdrecord driver=XXX' option.
-- find out which drivers exist by running 'cdrecord driver=help'
You may have luck using the 'scsi2_cd' or 'mmc_cd' drivers. Otherwise,
try to find out who iomega bought the hardware from and which driver
works for that sort of drive...
