how to use "ATAPI:" protocol for IDE CD/RWs??

  are there known problems with trying to access IDE CD/RWs directly
through the IDE drivers, rather than using SCSI emulation? i've tried
testing cdrecord using the "dev=ATAPI:x,y,z" option, and am having
no luck.

  would this be the right forum to supply details?


p.s. using 2.6.0-test1 kernel.
