There has been signifigant discussion here in the past about cdbakeoven
not detecting ATAPI burners when run as an ordinary user.

I had this issue, and may have a solution.

Be sure your kernel is compiled with device atapicam.

As root do:
# chmod u+s /usr/local/bin/cdrecord
Which will allow cdrecord to run as suid root.

In other words, it's still not being run as an ordinary user...

cdbakeoven *is* being run as an ordinary user, which was the original issue, but to detect an atapi burner, it has to do 'cdrecord -scanbus', which will fail if not run as root. Make sense?

You can simply give a normal user rw-access to /dev/cd*, /dev/xpt* and /dev/pass* and it works too. No need to set suid cdrecord. IMHO a much better solution.
