most CDRW drives seem to be a lot happier if you load the 
applicable SCSI generic layer over them.  E.g. you have
a builtin CDRW?  modprobe ide-scsi

I haven't used the USB one, but a USB floppy was happy
after I loaded the USB "storage" module, which reported
SCSI linkup, and I was able to both read and write.  So 
that probably ought to be enough, but as I said, I've no 
personal experience with it.

Let us know if that does it for you.
