Atapicam is needed if you want to use cdrecord and growisofs
Mine says (note the quotes);
This should be in /etc/sysctl.conf
Don't forget that this is not sufficient you mount stuff as a normal
- you need read/write permissions to the device
- and you need to _own_ the mount point.

By default, devd doesn't do anything usefull with CD/DVD devices, AFAICT.
I'm not sure what you need this for.

I've got the following in devfs.conf, to use the CD/DVD burner as a
pseudo SCSI device (atapicam in kernel, but not atapicd);
# Give members of group cdrom access to the CD/DVD-ROM and DVD+RW via the
# SCSI interface
own xpt0 root:cdrom
perm xpt0 0660
own cd0 root:cdrom
perm cd0 0660
own cd1 root:cdrom
perm cd1 0660
link cd0 cdrom
link cd0 dvd
The following is in /etc/devfs.rules;
add path 'pass*' mode 0660 group cdrom
IIRC I did this because pass devices are created as needed.
My kernel config has the following devices (among others);
device atadisk # ATA disk srives
device ataraid # RAID drives
device atapicam # Emulate ATAPI devices as SCSI via CAM
options ATA_STATIC_ID # Static device numbering
# SCSI peripherals
device scbus # SCSI bus (required for SCSI)
device cd # Compact Disc
device da # Direct Access (disks)
device pass # Passthrough device (direct SCSI access)
