For testing purpose I'm trying to remake and burn the FreeBSD 6.1 CD

Next I want to burn the image on a CD-R, but it fails. I'm using the
-t option now, since I've already wasted a CD on an Ubuntu image:

Is that a typo or is your writer a different drive? Multiple drives on an IDE cable seem to cause problems for some people.

Input/output error

Have you tried a new CD? Every now and then I'll get an error, but "fixate" always seems to write something to the CD, so it's a goner. Maybe not with -t, but an earlier attempt? Try a fresh blank. And also try burning at a slower speed, like 8x.
