when I type cdrecord -scanbus I get this error. Is there anyway to solve it? Other posts that I have read didn't work for me.

root@craftyc-ftp root # cdrecord -scanbus
Cdrecord 1.11a19 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jörg Schilling
cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/pg*'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.

Thanks.

make sure you have generic scsi support comiled into your kernel, that fixed it for me

Make sure you didn't forget to pass hdc=ide-scsi to your kernel (in this case hdc is the cd-burner, replace it with yours).

For example, this is a snapshot of my /boot/grub/menu.lst

Code:
default 0
timeout 3
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

title=Gentoo Linux
root (hd0,0)
kernel /bzImage root=/dev/hda3 vga=0x318 hdd=ide-scsi


My CD-burner is hdd.

Hope that helps.
