you seem to be new to linux, so i'd suggest you start off by reading
some HOWTO's at linuxdoc.org/HOWTO, eg the SCSI howto, and more
specifically the section on ATAPI CDROMs:
cdrecord only supports SCSI devices (same for cdrdao and cdparanoia
iirc). so to get your CDRW working you'll have to load a module to
allow applications to access that drive as if it was a SCSI device.
when you have that setup
will tell you what cdrecord thinks.
