Thank Wojciech,
It was fixed 5 minutes after I posted message. I was missing atapicam in 
my kernel so I just added  atapicam_load="YES" into loader.conf
In mean time I portupgraded a few ports so K3b is not complaining 
anymore. I am listening some of CD-s I burned today. I am
also using  TeXLive which I cut today.

Thanks for the Help body
