While burning a cdrom, xcdroast 0.98alpha8 hanged up. After killing it,
the cdwriter doesn't respond to any commands and the tray door doesn't
The cdwriter isn't mounted (df output and cat /proc/mounts).

output from scsi_inquiry /dev/sr1:
PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W1210S 1.01, byte_7=0x18
kernel: sr1: CDROM (ioctl) reports ILLEGAL REQUEST.
Can I somehow do a scsi reset or anything to be able to use again the
cdwriter whitout rebooting?
Why did this happen?
