dev=ATAPI uses ide-scsi interface, through /dev/sgX. And:

dev=ATA uses direct IDE burning. Try that as root. In my box, as root:

werewolf:~# cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus

The scan through ATA lasts much less than with ATAPI, and you can burn with
dev=ATA:1,0,0 or dev=/dev/burner, which is the new recommended way.

But as I said, scanning through ATA is not avaliable to normal users, so
it is someway useless.
