I started following as I'll be burning cd's here soon myself, following
your suggestion:

[root at heaven]cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord-Clone 2.01 (i386-unknown-freebsd8.0) Copyright (C) 1995-2004
J�g Schilling
cdrecord: Invalid argument. CAMIOCOMMAND ioctl failed. Cannot open SCSI
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'.
cdrecord: For possible transport specifiers try 'cdrecord dev=help'.

So I did this:

[root at heaven]dmesg -a | grep acd
acd0: DMA limited to UDMA33, controller found non-ATA66 cable
acd0: DVDR <HP DVD Writer 1040r/MH21> at ata1-master UDMA33

Yours In Christ,
