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

*Actually the = is correct, and you do need it for what you're doing. I

*growisofs -dvd-compat -Z

Here's how it worked.
I installed the DVD port
I used the following from all the suggestions and it worked with Manolis
DVD p1 7.2
1st> I put hw.ata.atapi_dma="1" in the /boot/loader.conf
2nd> put apticam_load="YES" in the /boot/loader.conf
(That 2nd 18.7.2 instruction is not clear in the Handbook section and
should be added.)
Then> I ran # growisofs -dvd-compat -Z
(all on one line)
Then> I was able to use cd0 as a DVD burner and make the DVD-R
I tested the DVD on a spare box and it installed just fine.
I suggest that the authors of the section 18.7/2 add the sample command
line for atapicam as they did for dma="1" to eliminate the confusion.
Thanks to all who helped
