I'd like to see the output of the following (from a terminal, as root):

cdrecord dev=ATA -scanbus

You might want to try a cd recording from the CLI too. Assuming you
have a suitable iso ready made:

cdrecord -v -eject driveropts=burnfree speed=16 dev=ATA:x,x,x -dao

All on one line, and x,x,x replaced by the output from cdrecord dev=ATA
-scanbus. The speed number should be conservative for testing; no more
than 1/3 of the rated top speed of the drive.
