Which bug reports did you read?

What does lsscsi show on your system?  (You may have to install the
lsscsi package first.)  My wife's desktop shows something like this:

[0:0:0:0]    disk    ATA      WDC WD2000JD-00G 02.0  /dev/sda
[4:0:0:0]    disk    ATA      ST380011A        3.06  /dev/sdb
[5:0:0:0]    cd/dvd  LITE-ON  LTR-52246S       6S0F  /dev/scd0
[5:0:1:0]    cd/dvd  JLMS     XJ-HD165H        CH11  /dev/scd1

Even though i have a combination of ATA and SATA, they all show up as
SCSI.  Yours should be similar.

I avoided it rather intentionally, because i don't think it will be
helpful in solving your problem, which is getting MP3s onto audio CD.
