The simplest way is to pass the following boot option to the kernel

If you really want to switch to SCSI emulation, just disable 'IDE/ATAPI CDROM support' (in the 'IDE, ATA and ATAPI block devices' menu), and don't forget to enable SCSI CDROM and SCSI generic support.

I've have an IDE/ATAPI drive, and began to get frustrated with SCSI emulation--began to wonder if I could just burn with my ATAPI as is:

cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus
cdrecord -v -speed=? -dev=ATAPI:?,?,? /path/to/iso

?,?,? = the address specified in cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus, and you should indicate whatever writing speed you'd like. I use speed=8.
