My own version has:

derek at othello:~$ grep sg /etc/udev/rules.d/*.rules
/etc/udev/rules.d/40-permissions.rules:KERNEL=="sg[0-9]", \
 IMPORT{parent}=="ID_*", ENV{ID_CDROM}=="?*", GROUP="cdrom"

and I'm convinced that it really _should_ work (and right now,
where /dev/sg1 is associated with /dev/scd0, the ownership is correct), but
last week when I was actually doing some CD burning, I had to keep setting
the permissions on /dev/sg0.  I obviously have some work to do ... :-)
