the test is cdparanoia -Qsv for a thorough scan.
i am stuck in the middle of the same problem right now
mine is a scsi r/w drive and the setup in /dev is
/dev/cdrom -> /dev/sr0 -> /dev/scd0.
on an adjacent r/h machine, the working setup is:
/dev/cdrom -> /dev/scd0 and cdparanoia announces that the generic device
is /dev/sg1 which is nowhere in the chain!
cdparanoia needs the generic device apparantly.
all help/pointers appreciated!
