    First, I would think you want the device with ATAPI, not the generic. I
    don't use that nomenclature so I may be misreading it. I have used plain
    /dev/hdc and had it work.

    Second, did you use -scanbus to see which three numbers cdrecord wants
    with ide-scsi and try those? You don't want ATAPI in front of it, just
    dev=1,0,0 or similar.
