Assuming that what you have is a HP 7200e - it is not actually a SCSI device,
but the Windows driver makes it look like one to the rest of that OS.

For Linux information, you should visit http://www.torque.net/parport/cdr.html

If you are running a 2.2 kernel, you should be able to do the following:

        insmod parport
        insmod parport_pc
        insmod paride
        insmod epat
        insmod pcd
        insmod pg

At this point, the drive should be accessible as an ordinary CD-ROM on
/dev/pcd0. If you want to write CDs on it, you must get 'cdrecord' and
build it with 'pg' support.

pcd does _not_ support writing to CD-RW media as if it were a normal
disk, nor does it read multi-session CDs at this time.
