Ok, that's just strange. You can't even _read_ from the raw device, but
the mount works ok?

And you got no IO errors anywhere? I don't see why the write would fail

I wonder whether the disk capacity is set to zero. See
drivers/ide/ide-cd.c, and in particular the

/* Now try to get the total cdrom capacity. */
stat = cdrom_get_last_written(cdi, (long *) &toc->capacity);
if (stat || !toc->capacity)
stat = cdrom_read_capacity(drive, &toc->capacity, sense);
if (stat)
toc->capacity = 0x1fffff;

and see what that says.. I really think you should start sprinkling
printk's around the thing to determine what goes on..
