Those are the actual console commands given above.

I have found that wodim --devices finds the two ide drives, a cdrom drive
and a cdrw drive, but I normally burned cd's with a sony usb cdrw drive.
After last night's adventures the usb drive appears to be dead.  wodim
--scanbus found it at 0,0,0 but as stated above went crazy trying to
write to it.  I then made the mistake of telling wodim to write to
/dev/sg0, the location reported when the usb drive was connected.  wodim
tried and failed.  After this the usb device is no longer recognized
when it is connected.  My fault.  I'll miss the usb drive as it was an
external drive I could move to another system.  If wodim can work with
an external usb drive I will replace it.
