Ok, I get this:

acd0: CDRW <LITE-ON DVDRW LDW-811S> at ata1-master PIO4
cd0 at ata1 bus 0 target 0 lun 0
cd0: <LITE-ON DVDRW LDW-811S HS06> Removable CD-ROM SCSI-0 device 
cd0: 16.000MB/s transfers
cd0: Attempt to query device size failed: NOT READY, Medium not present


FYI, I'm burning 4x DVD-R Memorex media in the drive (which is an
8x capable Lite-on).


And just as I was writing this I gave growisofs another shot and
it's ... going..

and done.. and mounted...

I think the drive would likely use a firmware update.

Thanks for the response.
