Could you tell the exact error (error message welcome)?

So then it is using a SCSI type of interface for the CD

No, because it isn't needed. FreeBSD automatically loads
the drivers for the hardware that is present. Additional
hardware can be accessed via loadable modules (which's
functionality you can include into the kernel by compiling
your own, but it mostly isn't neccessary).

Again, a copy of the error message or more detailed
explaination of possibly malicious behaviour would really
help to recognize the problem, and to help correcting it.
