>Description:
I tried to install FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE / i386 on a test machine with a SATA DVD-drive (DVDR Optiarc 7590S/1.00 at ata3 master UDMA33).

During boot time the following messages are displayed (approx):
(immediately after detection of acd0)

acd0: DVDR Optiarc-7590S/1.00 at ata3 master UDMA33
acd0: TIMEOUT - READ_BIG (1 retry left)
acd0: TIMEOUT - READ_BIG (0 retries left)
acd0: FAILURE - timed out
GEOM_LABEL: Label for provider acd0 is iso9660/FreeBSD_Install
acd0: TIMEOUT - READ_BIG (1 retry left)
acd0: TIMEOUT - READ_BIG (0 retries left)

If i continue the installation with media type CD/DVD, there are read errors
for almost any port (base, GENERIC, ...). I can only use FTP to install FreeBSD on this machine or use an older release e. g. 6.3-RELEASE.

I tried the same with 7.0-STABLE-200807 with the same result
>How-To-Repeat:
Try to boot / read from any FreeBSD-isos greater than 7.0-RELEASE on a machine using a SATA CD/DVD drive in IDE Mode.

It does not occur on 6.3-RELEASE/i386 using the same media type (blank CD).
(i have not tried older releases or other sys-types than this)

Changing the media type (blank CD from another vendor) does not help.

>Fix:
n/a
