If it was a permission problem, cdrecord would have an error message like

Cdrecord 1.10 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2001 Jörg Schilling
cdrecord: Permission denied. Cannot open '/dev/sg0'. Cannot open SCSI
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are

So it seems to be a problem with the driver (especially since the drive
can still be mounted as an IDE drive).

But to avoid further problems, make sure you are in the cdrom group if the
driver finally works. And changing the ownership of /dev/sg* to
root.cdrom and allowing read/write access for group cdrom  to these
devices can make ripping of audio cds much easier.
