There are a few problem reports for cdrecord already - it sounds like
the issue is from package installed versions of cdrtools, the solution
seems to be compile from ports instead of installing from a pre-built

I can say I have compiled from ports and don't have an issue burning
dvd's - I have just upgraded to 9.1 from 9.0. I was going to say I have
atapicam enabled but it appears that it isn't able to load on my system.
Apparently ATA_CAM is a default part of 9.x and atapicam isn't needed,
even though the module is still compiled.

While you can email the port maintainer it is generally best to report
through the freebsd website. Under support you can start with Bug
reports to search if someone else has already reported it, then either
Submit Followup (bottom of page) to an existing report with more
information or Submit Bug-report if you need to create a new report.
