problems with scsi emulation Debian unstable


Reading about how to burn cd's on Linux i find that cdrecord works only with scsi emulation. Ok i made everything i read and typing "cdrecord -scanbus " i got this:
~: cdrecord -scanbus
Linux sg driver version: 3.1.25
Using libscg version 'schily-0.8'.
0,0,0 0) 'Compaq ' 'CD-ROM SC-148E ' 'PC05' Removable CD-ROM
0,1,0 1) 'HL-DT-ST' 'CD-RW GCE-8481B ' '1.00' Removable CD-ROM
0,2,0 2) *
0,3,0 3) *
0,4,0 4) *
0,5,0 5) *
0,6,0 6) *
0,7,0 7) *
But when i try to mount the drive for reading the shell tell me this:
~: mount /cdrom
mount: /dev/cdrom is not a valid block device
actually the entry for /cdrom in my ftsab is:
/dev/cdrom /cdrom iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
~: ls -l /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2004-03-14 19:09 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/scd0

i'm dizzy ( :S ) right now because of this.

Try inserting the ide-scsi module: modprobe ide-scsi and you may also have to modprobe the "sg" module. If it works out, put the names of the modules in /etc/modules to make sure they are loaded on boot.
