What I said was two lines:

"The SATA ATAPI errors you see are something I can't really help with,
many see these kinds of messages on all sorts of hardware."

Although I am curious to know what happens if you take that SATA ATAPI
drive and replace it with another SATA ATAPI drive of a different brand,
such as Plextor or Pioneer.  Most of the ATAPI errors I've seen have
been caused by ATAPI devices which simply don't implement specific ATAPI
commands.  FreeBSD is fairly verbose about reporting such.
