Are you using "dev=ATAPI:1,0,0" instead of just "dev=1,0,0" this is
supposed to be the new way to handle atapi drives. I have burned quite a
few cd's both data and audio using the atapi driver and although
cdrecord complains like crazy I haven't made any coasters yet. Once you
get a device setting that works you can put it in /etc/default/cdrecord
and avoid it on the command line.

- From what I can tell the cdrecord people and the kernel people are mad
at each other or something. It seems we should all be using solarus.
