DvD writer on Fedora 7 live cd

Hey all, i really need to get my dvd burner to work with the fedora 7 test 3 live cd , But i can't get it to mount. I have loaded the livecd to my ram so i may have the use of my burner. I got it to work in read only mode with a random DVD. But i cant mount it with a blank DVD

my fstab looks as follows
GNU nano 2.0.3              File: /etc/fstab                                  

/dev/mapper/livecd-rw   /                       ext3    defaults,noatime 0 0
devpts                  /dev/pts                devpts  gid=5,mode=620  0 0
tmpfs                   /dev/shm                tmpfs   defaults        0 0
proc                    /proc                   proc    defaults        0 0
sysfs                   /sys                    sysfs   defaults        0 0
/dev/sdb1                /media/sdb1              ext3    defaults    0 0
/dev/scd0        /mnt/dvd   iso9660 rw,user,noauto  0       0
i tryed this with no luck
[root@localhost dev]# mount /dev/scd0
mount: block device /dev/scd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/scd0,
       missing codepage or other error
       (could this be the IDE device where you in fact use
       ide-scsi so that sr0 or sda or so is needed?)
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

[root@localhost dev]# mount /dev/scd0 /mnt/dvd
mount: block device /dev/scd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
when i tryed to burn with the cd/dvd creator it would only allow image file creation.

What am i doing wrong ? Is this possible?

you can't mount a blank disk.
you can try cdrecord --scanbus to see the device numbers that cdrecord needs to use.
