Just checked, it's there, thank you.

doing a cdrecord -scanbus, I get for my cdwriter;
scsibus1:
  1,0,0   100) 'LG      ' 'CD-RW CED-8080B ' '1.06' Removable CD-ROM

So doing a;

cdrecord dev=1,0,0 -reset
Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jörg Schilling
scsidev: '1,0,0'
scsibus: 1 target: 0 lun: 0
Linux sg driver version: 3.1.22
Using libscg version 'schily-0.7'

appears to reset the bus.

Thanks to everyone. I did not see those options.
