In my case....

cdrecord -dev=ATA:0,1,0

Is the corect way of addressing my DVD-RW that is on the ide bus.


There is also the ATAPI transport driver.

cdrecord -scanbus -dev=ATAPI

I also have an acual SCSI bus as well and for some reason it lists devices
on that as well. Try either one, but DO DUMMY WRITES to find out if your
going to get coasters, system crashes, or etc.



For the nasty political/technical/personal details about ide-scsi
emulation look below.
