Subject:   Reading Multisession PCD's

Can anyone tell me what the current status is on reading 
multisession photo_cd's is on FreeBSD?

My Plextor CD is multisession compatible.

Over the last few months I had three Kodak brand PCD disks burned
at a local service bureau, where they burn the disks on site.
Each disk was created seperately using a new blank disk each time;
none of the images were appended to any previous disks.

The first two disks fine, all images are accessible.

With the third disk, I had 60 images scanned onto it, but when
I tried to view it, I only could see the first two images. I
brought the disk back to the service bureau, and all 60 images
were there, 'it had to be my system' they said.

It seems that they scanned in the first two images, then for what
ever reason, closed the session. The other 58 images that were added
in the following sessions are not visible.
They copied the "multisession" disk, which created a new "single
session" disk, and all is well. 

I saw that there was some discussion on this subject on -hackers
about one year ago.  My question; Whats the current status on
reading these multisession disks on FreeBSD 2.2.n-R?
