I have a i686 machine with FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE. It works very well...
except the DVD player. This is the line the kernel show at boot about
this unit: 

acd0: DVDROM <Pioneer DVD-ROM ATAPIModel DVD-116 0122/E1.22> at
ata1-master UDMA66

Well, this DVD works allright with diferent GNU/Linux flavours, without
any kind of problem. But in FreeBSD is continuosly giving this error
kernel lines:

acd0: FAILURE - READ_BIG HARDWARE ERROR asc=0x08 ascq=0x03 acd0: FAILURE
- READ_BIG HARDWARE ERROR asc=0x08 ascq=0x03...

This line is repeated many times when a program try to read the DVD and
only stop when the program finish. If i mount a data CDROM (or DVD) i
can do "ls" of the content but if i try copy any file to the hard disk
the answer is "Input/output error". This is the /etc/fstab stuuf:

/dev/acd0          /cdrom          cd9660  ro,noauto       0       0

Only the music CDs are "well played", but nothing to do with movies or

The player is not damaged, with GNU/Linux works very fine...

Anybody in this lists knows if this unit have a reported 
"not compatibility" with FreeBSD?, or anybody have a similar problem
with others DVD or CD players?. Any solution, please?.

Thanks you very much, in advance. I am really desperado with this.
