Well, this "burncd" is a very limited tool.
AFAIK, it does not support DVDs. It definitely does not support BluRay
and it does not include work arounds for the various firmware bugs in the
drives you find in the field.
cdrecord gives you all you need for serious CD/DVD/BluRay media support
and you need cdrtools anyway in order to get mkisofs.
Why should FreeBSD not by default include a technology that is available
since 7 years?
