There are many threads about this and in general was confused so if anyone could help me I would appreciate it. To start, I am trying to burn an iso, lets say default.iso. I have tested the output of the drive as follows.

Is there a way that I can easily burn the image? What is the "badly designed ATAPI via/dev/hd" interface mean?
The first time I tried burning iso's I did not put any speed=x parameter and the iso's produced did not work.
My cd's are "Princo 2X-48X CD-R80" so after reading the man pages I set speed=2 and everything was fine. I am guessing if you have a high quality cd-r you could leave out speed=x and let cdrecord choose the write speed.
If you want your CD to be read by most CD drives (including those 2-3 yrs old driver), limit the speed .. 2x (speed=2) will surely work with most drives .. but if you know that your CD will be used only by your PC .. then just leave the speed alone .. it will try to write at the fastest speed your CD-R can take.
