a first step to see if it's even making it to the "system thinks it's a
scsi device" stage is 'cat /proc/scsi/scsi'.  does it show up?  if so
that also identifies its bus/id/lun (useful for cdrecord, eventually).

if it's there, try mounting /dev/sr0 instead of /dev/scd0?

also make sure that you insert modules in the correct order...putting scsi
and ide-scsi in before usb* will probably not do the trick (they were
listed in the wrong order in your previous email, assuming left-to-right

it's been a while since i've used a usb-data device, tho it did show up
as sda (a CF reader).  i can't remember the sequence of modules to get
it working tho...and the machine in question is dead :(.
