OK. Now I understand. The problem is that you have to say /dev/cd0 to 
growisofs, not /dev/cd0c. I have almost finished patch for k3b in my 
disk, I'll try to push it into pkgsrc before 2009Q1 final. But AFAIR 
there are still problems with k3b and burning DVD disks - that's why I 
haven't finished my work yet.

I've never used cdrecord-ossdvd, it's dead old and is already removed from 
pkgsrc as well AFAIK. Just use sysutils/cdrtools, it works for me at
