If you want to write CDs, all access to the writer needs to be using ide-scsi.
(whether reading or writing)

For a read-only drive, you do not need to use it, but many people find it
easier to do so if they also have a writer.

An ATAPI CD writer will function as a read-only drive if you let the ide-cd
driver loose on it.
