SuSE-Linux 6.1, Creative CD-RW Blaster 2224 on /dev/hdd (IDE, secondary controller, slave)
(everything else I saw were only frontends to one of these)
At least it mentions IDE drives, althoug it does not recommend to use them.
hdparm -r 0 /dev/hdd is a necessity, because otherwise cdwrite will complain about a read-only file-system.
But even afterwards, the same problems happen
no (or only in very recent versions) ATAPI support, so I can't use it for my IDE drive.
cdrecord is said to undergo rapid development (as opposed to cdwrite).
The SCSI-only limitation can be bypassed by the kernel option "SCSI-hostadapter emulation", which I started using and it works well. The CD-Writing-HOWTO explains it all.
