Your problem looks to me a lot like one I had.
Linux-2.4.xx includes a CDROM Packet interface in the
IDE CD driver. For this driver libscg now includes
support in pre-alpha status. Use cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus
to check for drives and e.g. cdrecord dev=ATAPI:0,0 ....
for writing. Note that this interface is not integrated into
the standard libscg device naming scheme. Support for
this interface has been included because it is the only
way to use a PCCARD/PCMCIA writer - trying to use ide-scsi
on a PCATA interface will cause a Linux kernel panic
or will block all ATAPI drives.

I have been burning CDs without scsi.
