Yes, you don't need CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDESCSI. That was for when SCSI
emulation was used on IDE to read block devices. It's deprecated.

Try grepping for BLK. In particular (this is from 126.96.36.199, but it
probably hasn't changed much):
# SCSI support type (disk, tape, CD-ROM)
# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SD is not set
# CONFIG_CHR_DEV_ST is not set
# CONFIG_CHR_DEV_OSST is not set
# CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SR is not set
# CONFIG_CHR_DEV_SG is not set
# CONFIG_CHR_DEV_SCH is not set
I don't have SCSI, so these aren't set for me. If I had to take a
guess without actually running config and looking at the help, I would
say you need CONFIG_BLK_DEV_SR.

OK, what does ls -l /dev/sr1 say? How about file /dev/sr1? Is it
actually a block device?
