The atapicam support was merged into k3b based on the patches from Heiner. I 
didn't realize that atapicam was an unstable and wonky bit of code (as 
suggested by two other messages in this thread). I'm pretty sure noone from 
the KDE-FreeBSD team is working on burncd support. 

What makes you think that k3b supports many other burning backends?

Don't worry, 't ain't no shame to be stupid - ol' mouse.
