I just ran into this after upgrading to 14.0. I think the Slackware 13.37 kernel (2.6.37) loaded the module "sg" automatically when a disk device was discovered, and the Slackware 14.0 kernel (3.2.29) does not. The cdrecord commands require that module, so they won't work under Slackware 14 unless you load the module manually or in a startup script.
But I'm just guessing. I don't really know why this is happening. I do know that my 13.37 rc.modules did NOT specifically load the sg module - it just happened, and 14.0 doesn't do it.
