On the commandline you can use the -prcap (print capabilities) option
of wodim (since openSUSE 10.2) .. e.g. like
# wodim dev=/dev/hdb -prcap
(replace /dev/hdb with the devicefile reflecting your drive).

If you are more into GUI Apps.. k3b e.g. can also show them
.. choose the "Settings" menu, "Configure K3b.." and select 
the "Devices" object in the new dialog appearing.

Have fun,
Frank
