Using ATAPI devices on SUSE Linux

Since the recent SUSE Linux distributions use Linux kernel 2.6,
the only supported interface is the new ATA interface. Therefore
the recommended way of running cdrecord is:

wodim dev=/dev/cdrecorder

and for scanning devices:

wodim -devices

The original way of specifying the device with dev=x,y,z or dev=ATA:x,y,z
and scanning devices with cdrecord -scanbus is kept only for compatibility
with cdrecord.

Please don't use ide-scsi or dev=ATAPI. These kernel interfaces 
are obsolete and unmaintained.
