Here is the command string I use successfully to burn a dir of picture
files on FreeBSD 7.1 system.

    /usr/sbin/burncd -f /dev/acd0c -s max data PIC2005-cdimage fixate

I don't remember what I did to create the PIC2005-cdimage file.

I was having trouble with the system trying to run the burner too fast
with I had a speed argument in the command line.  Without it, it
runs fast enough for the few I was making.
