'cdrecord -scanbus' finds nothing


i have a slackware 9.1 that i want to upgrade to 10
i'm downloading the .iso images now.
i tried to find my burner by using the command
cdrecord -scanbus
nothing was found.
Code:
root@DarkStar:~# cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord 2.00.3 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jörg Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.
I tried cdrecord dev=help and it printed the following.

now i'm really lost.
i expected it to tell me the location of my drive, and now i do not think i can burn.
am i inturpreting this correct. is slackware unable to see my warm drive?
how can i fix this so i can burn my iso images?

also, make sure to add:

hd*=ide-scsi #where * is the letter of your writer (a,b,c or d usually)

to /etc/lilo.conf
If you are using a 2.6.x kernel then you don't need to.
Remember to run lilo after changing lilo.conf.

Ok this is what happened when i ran
Code:
 cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus
these are my results
Code:
Cdrecord 2.00.3 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jörg Schilling
scsidev: 'ATAPI'
devname: 'ATAPI'
scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
Warning: Using ATA Packet interface.
Warning: The related libscg interface code is in pre alpha.
Warning: There may be fatal problems.
Using libscg version 'schily-0.7'
scsibus0:
        0,0,0     0) 'HP      ' 'CD-Writer+ 9100 ' '1.0c' Removable CD-ROM
        0,1,0     1) *
        0,2,0     2) *
        0,3,0     3) *
        0,4,0     4) *

        0,6,0     6) *
        0,7,0     7) *
I'm assuming that from this i can run the following command and it will work.
Code:
cdrecord -v dev=0,0,0 foobar.iso
