For the record, you can replace that command with:
$ grep /dev/hd /etc/fstab

This tells me that /dev/hdb is the cd writer.

This confirms it.

Replace /dev/cdrom with /dev/cdwriter.  You were trying to record on
your reader, not your writer.

The reason it's not "normal" is that it won't normally work.  If the
configuration file is wrong (and I think it is), then replacing it with
the original configuration file won't help you at all.
