Looks like the result I had when attempting to write a DVD-R with 

My drive is a:
acd0: DVDR <LITE-ON DVDRW SOHW-1633S/BS0K> at ata1-master UDMA33

The media was ruined in the above attempt but growisofs worked.

Tried writing to the author of cdrecord, followed his instructions to 
the letter because his published freeware key to enable DVD did not 
work. Suspect it didn't like the "5.3" part of FreeBSD. Never heard
