I think I made it work by examining the output of

"camcontrol devlist -v" followed by
"cdrecord -scanbus".

These commands will complain about missing permission and also print the
according device names.


Btw: The xcdroast port (which I find much nicer than gtoaster, but I don't want
you to solve your problems with gtoaster by using a different program :-) allows
you to specify some normal users that are allowed to burn cd-r(w)s.
