At least in [Debian] [Woody], the file <tt>/etc/default/cdrecord</tt> stores settings about your CD writer(s). The last section which maps the device settings to the drive name __''must'' be Tab separated__. Spaces won't work.
Make sure that your user has permission to any required device files and executable programs. In [Debian], the files have the appropriate permissions for people in the <tt>cdrom</tt> group. If you add yourself to the group you will have to log out and back in for that to take effect.
!!! How to get your CDR working – [ATAPI] Styles
Recent 2.4 kernels, and all 2.6 kernels, have support for cdwriting via [ATAPI]. Historically, the cdrecord program only worked over [SCSI] and [Linux] users needed [SCSI] emulation. There was argument over whether this was the kernel's fault or cdrecord's fault. See [Linus's take | http://lkml.org/lkml/2003/11/6/151] and [the author's take | http://www.wlug.org.nz/archive/docs/cdrecord-README.ATAPI] on this as well as [an explaination of both points of view on Slashdot | http://linux.slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=141120&cid=11825433].
