kldload atapicam will do this
in /boot/loader.conf will do it every reboot.

This is silly, leave acd there, and you don't need SMP unless you have
an SMP system (ie it is unrelated to this problem)

I think it's OK to stick with acd0.
The only time you *need* ATAPICAM is to burn CD/DVDs with something like
growisofs or cdrecord, or you want to use cdda2wav.

How are you trying to play DVDs?
You should start by stating the problem you're trying to solve, not have
it as a rider at the end of your email.
If you are using xine then you can make a dvd symlink in /dev and do
If you edit /etc/devfs.conf and make sure it has these 2 lines..
# Commonly used by many ports
link acd0 cdrom
link acd0 dvd
it should do it for you.
Then DVD playing apps should find your drive OK. If not please give
actual error messages and fully describe what you're trying.
