Works without problems here - are you sure you used the right device numbers and names?

I have a very similar setup - in my case 24x ATAPI CD-ROM and 4x2x2 ATAPI CD-RW - and admit that I was puzzled at first with how to get them both set up. The working hardware setup here that allows me to write to the CD-RW using cdrecord is as follows: hda = Hard drive hdb = CD-ROM hdc = Zip hdd = CD-RW To get them all working as required, I have to specify in /etc/lilo.conf that hda and hdb use the standard IDE driver, hdc uses the IDE-Floppy driver and hdd uses the IDE-SCSI driver. I also need to have all three drivers hard compiled into the kernel, as otherwise the specifications are ignored. With this setup, the drives are actually referred to as follows: Hardware Device Software ~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~ hda Hard disk hda hdb CD-ROM hdb hdc Zip-250 hdc hdd CD-RW sr0 <=== Note this Note the changed reference for the CD-RW as hdd does NOT work with this setup.
