You might should do the following to double-check me

cdrecord -scanbus

This should return on what scsi bus, target and lun your CDRW is located
on.  If it doesn't (and I'm assuming you are using a IDE CDRW you
probably need to add something like hdd=ide-scsi to your grub
configuration file.  This also assumes that hdd is not a valid IDE
device in your system and that you have SCSI device emmulation enabled
in the kernel.

Finally, cdrecord -scanbus would return output similar to the following
on successfully locating your CDRW--

Hope this helps.
