If you are familiar with using the command line on a FreeBSD system, you can use dvd+rw-tools to burn the DVD using the following steps:

# Place the blank DVD into the drive 
# Install the port if it is missing: pkg_add -r dvd+rw-tools
# Issue the burn command, replacing the cd number and ISO name to reflect yours: growisofs -Z /dev/cd0=PCBSD8.1-x86-DVD.iso
# Eject the DVD once the burn is finished

You may need to have the ATAPI_CAM kernel option in your kernel to successfully do this if you are burning to a DVD drive that's connected via the ATAPI interface.
