CD and DVD writers are a userland problem.  Almost all CD writers
should work with cdrecord and most probably cdrdao.  It's a
different thing with DVD-/+R/W, though support is improving to
"the just screw it in and throw away the (Win) driver CD" stage .
Until recently, CD/DVD writing was done primarily via IDE SCSI
emulation, rather than direct ATAPI.
