The version of growisofs that I use doesn't have a -Z option.  From a
system that does:

       -Z /dev/dvd
              Burn  an  initial session to the selected device. A special form
              of this option is recognized to support burning of  pre-mastered
              images. See EXAMPLES section for further details.

Is this your intention?  If so, it seems that you're not sticking to
the syntax.

This doesn't tell me whether you have a /dev/cd0 or not.  That depends
on the release of FreeBSD.  Use 'ls -l /dev/cd0' and check that it's a
character device.  You should see:

   crw-r-----  1 root  operator    4,  28 Jun 25 21:11 /dev/cd0

Older systems have:

   brw-r-----  1 root  operator    6,   0 Aug 26  2000 /dev/cd0a
   brw-r-----  1 root  operator    6,   2 Aug 26  2000 /dev/cd0c
