This problem seems having been there for a while, but was not pay
attention to it till now.

Most DVDs burned under Windows machine cannot be mounted on FreeBSD
8.3-R. It gives following error:
# mount /cdrom
mount_cd9660: /dev/acd0: Invalid argument
Some of those DVD can be mount, but no content can be found:
% df /cdrom
Filesystem  512-blocks   Used  Avail Capacity  Mounted on
/dev/acd0      4687968  4687968        0   100%    /cdrom
% ll /cdrom
total 4

Searched bug report, but did not find related report.
Does anyone have seen this problem? If so, is any working around for
this problem?
