Audio CD problem on laptop VGN-SZ61MN

Is there anyone out there who has installed FreeBSD on the above Sony
laptop ?

Both ''cat filename > /dev/dsp0.0'' or ''vlc cdda:///dev/acd0@1 are OK.

If I run ''cdcontrol -f /dev/acd0 play'', there is no sound.
But the output of ''cdcontrol -f /dev/acd0 status audio'' is alright.
(same behaviour for cd0 instead of acd0) 

And the output of ''mplayer cdda://1//dev/acd0'' is:
Playing cdda://1//dev/acd0.
++ WARN: open: Inappropriate ioctl for device
**ERROR: fread (): Invalid argument

On the other hand, DVD's play fine, for example with
either ''vlc dvd:///dev/acd0@2'' or ''mplayer dvd://2''

I wonder whether the problem is related to the FAILURE line in dmesg:
acd0: DVDR <MATSHITADVD-RAM UJ-852S/1.01> at ata0-master UDMA33
acd0: FAILURE - INQUIRY ILLEGAL REQUEST asc=0x24 ascq=0x00 
acd0: FAILURE - INQUIRY ILLEGAL REQUEST asc=0x24 ascq=0x00 
cd0 at ata0 bus 0 target 0 lun 0
cd0: <MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-852S 1.01> Removable CD-ROM SCSI-0 device 
cd0: 33.000MB/s transfers
cd0: Attempt to query device size failed: NOT READY, Medium not present

Adding ''device atapicam'' in the kernel doesn't make a difference.

I found some messages concerning the FAILURE line in the mailing list
archives, but no solution.

Thank you in advance for any help.
