You mention in your original post that you feel like somehow the "ata"
just went bad in some way or another. Just to isolate this to a FreeBSD
software issue have you tried booting to, say, a Knoppix live-cd and
mounting the CD. Seems to me that if it works under one of the Linux
live-cds that you can pretty much narrow it down to something with
FreeBSD and/or it's interaction with your particular hardware.
