I've used the same drive with cdrecord-current (in pkgsrc) under NetBSD/i386
-current.  I only burned one CDRW (successful), and then erased it.  Worked

I have the same drive:
cd0 at atapibus0 drive 1: <CRW6206A, , 1.6A> type 5 cdrom removable
cd0: 32-bits data port
cd0: drive supports PIO mode 4, DMA mode 2

You definitely should upgrade your firmware!  I found the 1.6A code via
