*What* burning software?

/usr/sbin/burncd should recognize the drive.

If you are trying to run cdrecord then you need "device atapicam" added
to your kernel config. Try "cdrecord -scanbus" to learn how cdrecord
names your device.

/etc/fstab is a File System Table used for mounting filesystems. You are
a ways off just yet in having a filesystem on acd0 to mount.

The OS doesn't know how to write/append an ISO 9660 filesystem so there
would be no possibility of attempting an accidental write to CDROM.
