    This will be my next 2 cents.

    The *natural* way to access any device is its device file in the /dev/

    I've "straced" cdrecrod few times when it coundn't do scnabus properly.
    What I have discovered is that cdrecord *just* tries to open several
    devices that *might* be recorders. There is no need to use USB for this
    to fail. For example if I had /dev/hda HDD and /dev/hdc CDR (no one
    attaches both on one channel) cdrecord stopped as it faild to open hdb
    while ther was no such file. Do I have to create device file if I ve got
    no device?

    The only thing we all ask is to make it possible to choose manually the
    device node cdrecord is trying to detect. That is a 'mechanism not
    polisy' thing. Let the other software insure the stabilit of naming.

    Best regards.
