Nothing wrong with dev=cdrom (if cdrom is a named device is
cdrecord.conf), but it's usually redundant when there's only one cd
writing device specified in cdrecord.conf. However, if there are
multiple cd writing devices specified, dev=cdrom would be necessary in
order to specify device "cdrom" rather than say "dvdwriter".
