cdrdao needs to be told which device and driver to use, either on the 
command line or in a configuration file. Here's my /etc/default/cdrdao 

write_driver: "generic-mmc-raw"
write_device: "ATA:1,0,0"
write_buffers: 32
read_paranoia_mode: 3

I use cdrecord (or wodim on Debian). Here are the relevant lines from my
/etc/default/cdrecord file:

cdrw=		ATA:1,0,0	-1	-1	burnfree

These assume that the DVD burner is master on the second IDE bus.
Details are in the cdrdao and cdrecord manpages if you need to
change that.
