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.
