You have to compile the ide-scsi emulation support in the kernel. So
basically, you recompile  your kernel with CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDESCSI=y
(module does not work) and boot your kernel with parameter 'hdc=scsi',
where hdc is your cdrw. Then it became a scsi device (so your cdrom is now
/dev/scd0 in stead of /dev/hdc, if you loaded the scsi cdrom module).

Then you should be alble touse your burner.
