No, you shouldn't need to patch or recompile a 5.x kernel since it 
should already have ATAPICAM.  With regard to dvd+rw-tools, see "man 
growisofs" and /usr/local/share/doc/dvd+rw-tools/index.html, which you 
could invoke as something like:

	growisofs -Z /dev/acd0c=file.iso

...although the output of dvd+rw-mediainfo on the disk you just 
attempted to burn might also be interesting to see.
