that's strange. cdrecord shouldn't complain in that case. Try this. The device name of your cd-writer, scd0 or sr0 or whatever it is (it shows up at the top of the output of cat /proc/etcetc) is actually a link. You can where it is linked by
ls -l /dev/scd0 (or whatever the right device name is)
the link target will be something like
the numbers behind bus,target and lun give you the way to identify the device for cdrecord. In the above case, I would pass the argument dev=0,3,0 to cdrecord. Maybe this'll work?
