You need to either run cdrecord as root or to install it suid root.

On Linux-2.4 it was possible to run cdrecord as user in case you did not
care about buffer underruns and in case you did make your system insedure by
running chmod on some /dev/* nodes.

This did change with Linux-2.6. Linux-2.6 Requires cdrecord to run
with root privileges because of at least two incompatible interface changes
in the Linux kernel.
