Gary, I've watched for this to go awhile before i went and jumped in, to
ask my question ... it's about my cdrom drive, whic is a sony, one
that's been 100% reliable for me, I used it regularly under linux with
k3b to burn stuff. Now, under FreeBSD, k3b won't even recognize it as a
ro or rw cd drive at all. I can coax burncd to burn bootable disks
successfully with it, but after the command completes, all further
accesses to the drive return "device busy", and I have to reboot FreeBSD
in order to even eject the cd. The only way I even knew the disk was ok
was because afterwards, it tried to boot the machine from the disk image
of a FreeBSD boot disk (which is what I was burning, for a different
machine, an AMD64 next to it). Lucky that this machine is even binarily
compatible (the Intel box is a 64 bit processor, so it boots AMD64 fine,
but I didn't install it that way).
Anyhow, how could I either coax k3b to recognize it, or get burncd to
let the disk go after it's finished with it?
