Hi John,

Try using:

cdrecord -scanbus

and post the output.  It should detect your writer and tell you the bus 
it is on.

Also, you have to use the SCSI emulation for it by passing the following 
to the
kernel (do this before the scanbus) where (x) is the IDE bus position of 
the drive:


Try using XCDRoast as the burning tool.  As far as burning DVD movies 
and stuff,
I think you have to create an image of the video first using some 
special tools
(similar to those used for SVCDs, and then burn them.  I don't think 
cares about what you burn and what you burn it to, as long as you have a 
disk image to burn.

Tell us what you find.
