I tried that too, and it didn't work, as I kind of expected :) Seems to me
that the cabling and physical stuff is ok, I suspect more a bug or
incomplete driver in FreeBSD. The CD-drive and rest of my hardware works
great, as I can prove when running Windows.
This kind of problems should not exist in modern operating systems, IMO. It
restricts my usage of my computer and is generally really annoying.
