Correction:  I rebooted and the usb cdrw drive is alive and well.

wodim --scanbus still reports it as device 0,0,0 but wodim --devices
finds it as dev='/dev/scd0' and the command wodim -v dev='dev/scd0'
data.iso works perfectly.

Maybe everybody else knew to use the output of wodim --devices rather
than wodim --scanbus but old habits die hard.
