Caveats about anything I say: 1) I'm using 7.2, and b) I'm using +R media.
Nothing is wrong with the syntax, although your command above says the ISO
file is in a directory called /path. Does the directory exist? Is the ISO
in that directory? Permissions OK on everything? Does /dev/cd0 point to
your burner? And as Adam said, make sure you have atapicam loaded.
I'm also assuming that dot at the end of your line is a period at the end
of your sentence, and not part of the command you issued.

It burns the ISO to the disk as a premastered disk, which is what you want
in this situation. If you wanted to just copy the ISO as a file, you'd
replace the = sign with a space.

I have no idea what somebody on the BSD forum said :^)
HTH. Hang loose.
