trying to use cdrecord for DVD on FreeBSD

None of my windoze DVD burners are working I downloaded two of them I am trying to follow an abusive expert who continues to LART me despite my steadfast attempts to learn to do things. I am supposed to be getting an MSCS so I need to try to learn some sort of internals. I started to read O'Reilley's TCP/IP Network Administration by Hunt but instead I am trying to burn the x64 DVD but maybe I should give up an burn the x86 CDs for PC-BSD.

Somebody told me that my device is not supported so I guess if gheist tells me I can't do this I will give him points.  He will be getting partial points for that other question, I liked all the nice screenshots the other guy gave me, but gheist understood there is something wrong with my network devices.
