I only have one small idea. Device names changed between 2.6.26 and
2.6.32, and this caused me some problems with wodim. Prior to the
change, I did something like:

    wodim dev=/dev/hdc ...

After the change, I had to switch the terminology:

    wodim dev='/dev/scd0' ...

Maybe you have some old device names buried in scripts that worked
in the past? You can do "wodim --devices" to get a list of the
current device names according to wodim, and maybe search through
any scripts or wodim config files for stale information?

You can safely ignore this idea if it is too basic.
