I run cdrecord as root. I have run is successfully using
Fedora Core 3 distro with 2.6.9-1.667 kernel installed.
$ uname -a
$ Linux FreePalestine 2.6.9-1.667 #1 Tue Nov 2 14:41:25 EST 2004 i686

I use cdrecord to burn iso images as opposed to just
music files, but I assume the "-dev" and "speed"
options would not be different for either iso images
or music files.

I use the following command:

cdrecord -v -dev=0,0,0 speed=0 TheIsoIAmBurning.iso

I thought "-dev" should have three parameters:

I recently read somewhere that if the speed is set to
zero or at least a low speed, it is more likely to
work on other players.
