Yes. Actually, I got it working a few days ago, using mmc_cdr. It has a
quirk in that it requires a written disc to be in the drive when I start
cdrecord, which complains that the drive needs its media reloaded. I then
insert a blank disk, hit return, and it writes perfectly. If I don't do
this, I get cdrecord reporting that the drive is only a reader.
Thanks for your help,
