cdrecord can't find driver

cdrecord can't find driver

I'm trying write CD w/my Acer CRW6206A, but cdrecord -scanbus just
returns:
Cdrecord 1.8 (i586-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2000 J?rg Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you
are root.
I am running as root, and I do have all the things compiled correctly
as per the howto. What's more I seem to have all the devices that
cdrecord demands:
/dev/sg0 /dev/sg2 /dev/sg4 /dev/sg6 /dev/sga /dev/sgc /dev/sge /de
v/sgg
/dev/sg1 /dev/sg3 /dev/sg5 /dev/sg7 /dev/sgb /dev/sgd /dev/sgf
/dev/sgh
(The /dev/sg# are sym links to the other ones)
I don't know what else there is left. I was given conficting
information about the use of ide-cd.o, so I took it out. What's more I
even fed "hdc=ide-scsi" to lilo on startup. (The drive is secondary-
master).

1. cdrecord can't find driver but OS can read from SCSI CDROM

I have always been able to burn CDs in Linux using an Initio 9100U
SCSI PCI card and a SCSI Yamaha CDW6416S drive, until I installed
Mandrake 8.1.

I also have an IDE Hitachi DVD-ROM GD-5000 which works fine.

Now I can mount the drive and read CDs OK but cdrecord sulks. If I
do...

cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you
are root.

If I do an lsmod I get the following related drivers...
initio                 19356   0
sd_mod                 11572   0  (unused)
scsi_mod               91804   3  [sr_mod initio sd_mod]

Out of dmesg I get...
i91u: PCI Base=0xD400, IRQ=9, BIOS=0xFF000, SCSI ID=7
i91u: Reset SCSI Bus ...
scsi0 : Initio INI-9X00U/UW SCSI device driver; Revision: 1.03g
  Vendor: YAMAHA    Model: CRW6416S          Rev: 1.0b
  Type:   CD-ROM                             ANSI SCSI revision: 02

Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0 at scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0

devfs: devfs_register(): device already registered: "cdrom1"
sr0: CDROM not ready.  Make sure there is a disc in the drive.
cdrom: open failed.
Device not ready.  Make sure there is a disc in the drive.

I am unclear if all the error messages above are simply because there
is no disk in the drive. I know some of them are due to this which I
can ignore.

Finally, I can scan the bus with KLinuxSCSIManager and the drive shows
up on 0,0,0 as it should do. So what is CDRecord's big problem?

What should I be looking for here?

Fred.
