Description of problem:

so claiming that the writer supports no writing modes:

Device seems to be: Generic mmc2 DVD-R/DVD-RW.
Using generic SCSI-3/mmc CD-R/CD-RW driver (mmc_cdr).
Driver flags : MMC-3 SWABAUDIO BURNFREE
cdrecord: Drive does not support TAO recording.
cdrecord: Illegal write mode for this drive.
The same occurs when passing "-dao" to cdrecord ("cdrecord: Drive does
not support SAO recording."). The drive has worked fine in this machine.
Writing to a SCSI-CDR in the same machine works fine with the same
kernel is kernel-2.6.8-1.526
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to write to an ATAPI writer
Actual Results: cdrecord claims no supported writing modes
Expected Results: Writing to media
can you try:
# cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc -tao
the ATA interface:
# cdrecord dev=ATA:1,0,0 -tao
The same result (the correct drive is being used).
The same command works as root.
