First, just check a few things:

1. Is the CD-RW media okay, not damaged?

2. Does the writer support this media?

3. Do you use the proper speed to record the media? Most CD-RWs can't
   be recorded as fast as CD-Rs can.

Since introduction of atapicam (needs to be in your kernel) I
switched to the cdrecord utility, and sometimes I use cdrdao,
both availabe from ports.
