camcontrol isn't going to know anything about IDE devices, it only knows about SCSI.
So why does it show the first cd, which is also ide?
It's hard to see without the propmpts, but are you trying to use burncd as root? A normal user isn't going to have the neccessary privs. to write a cd by default.
Yes. All the commands were typed as root.
cdcontrol is simply telling you it can't read the TOC of the cd in the drive, presumably because there's no cd in it.
There was a cd in the drive - a blank one I was trying to write to.
I haven't used cdcontrol in ages, but it's possible it needs root (in the case that you were using it as a normal user with a disk in the drive)
