I recently had this problem with a LiteOn CDRW. It turned out to be the
BIOS mucking up the motherboard IRQ routing.
Rearranging the PCI cards, playing with BIOS settings and booting into
Windows shuffled the IRQs around till eventually it started working

Using "cdrecord -scanbus" would trigger the error every time.

Very, very annoying.
