Your drive probably isn't MMC-capable. Try updating the firmware. For
a Samsung go here:
http://www.samsungoms-europe.com/samsung.php?section=download and get
the firmware updating tool (it's called LiveUpdate or something). It
only works in Windows, so hope that isn't a problem. If there's a
firmware upgrade for your drive, it might fix this error and allow the
FreeBSD dvd-tools to read your burner's configuration.
