laptop use a cdrom with ide-usb cable


I hope you can understand my English,I will try my best.

my loptop has no cdrom,so I brought a Samsang cdrw/dvd sm352b cdrom and use a ide-usb2.0 cable.(This will be cheap.)
I can mount the cdrom and read from it.
[root@localhost iso]# mount /dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom
mount: block device /dev/scd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only

[root@localhost iso]# cdrecord -scanbus

Someone said I should pass something to kernel and someone said I need not do that because my kernel is 2.65.
What should I do?
