Actually, I read the Handbook section on CD's, added device atapicam to my 
kernel config file, rebuilt the kernel.
Now my burner is detected in scanbus.
Still having lots of issues to sort out.

I have created a new data cd successfully by reading an iso image on another 
drive that I created in Windows with Easy CD Creator, but I can't mount that 
cd on FBSD or Windows.

camcontrol devlist shows my burner, but mount -t cd9660 /dev/cd0c /cdrom fails 
with cd9660: /dev/cd0c: Invalid argument
mount /cdrom also fails with cd9660: /dev/acd0c: Input/output error

I have just tried my old, original, 100% legal copy of Windows 95.
It mounts like a charm with either mount /cdrom or mount -t cd9660 /dev/cd0c /
cdrom.  The latter is much faster, though.

So I guess that means the cd's I'm making are somehow bad, or unuseable, or 
the .iso files I'm reading are incompatible with FBSD or cdbakeoven.

The cd's are Maxell CD-RW 650MB, which, of course, I erased with cdbakeoven 
before burning.

I'm copying my Windows 95 cd now, funny, my burner is 52x, but it's only 
burning at 4x, even though I've got the slider all the way to maximum.  I 
guess I can live with that.

OK, I successfully copied the Win95 cd, and can mount it.
That eliminates the cd's, and probably says the .iso images I created with 
Easy CD Creator are *no good* for FBSD or cdbakeoven.
I guess it *could* also be my settings in cdbakeoven, need to research that 

I'm also unable to read/play any commercial audio cd's.  It's like they are 
blank.  This is a *big* issue for me.  I *have* to get this resolved.

I did find *some* documentation.
In cdbakeoven, Help, About, click the link, browse the FAQ (very minimal) and 

Hope this helps!
