cdrecord: Please report.

I am not a happy camper.

Now that I've ``upgraded'' from 8.3-RELEASE to 9.1-RELEASE it appears that
good old burncd no longer works, apparently because the CD/DVD drive is
now exclusively handled as an ATAPICAM device.

So I try to use cdrecord and I get this:

# cdrecord dev=0,0,0 driveropts=burnfree FreeBSD-9.1-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso
cdrecord: No write mode specified.
cdrecord: Assuming -sao mode.
cdrecord: If your drive does not accept -sao, try -tao.
cdrecord: Future versions of cdrecord may have different drive dependent defaults.

So, um, WTF?  To whom am supposed to "report" this failure?

And more to the point, how can I burn a simple damn CD now?
