Well, I'm sorry to say that it looks like I've found the answer to my own
question.  I found after this posting (by looking at dmesg) that I was
getting the following error.
	acd0: rezero failed

I did some searching and found several postings in -current that said my
drive, a MITSUMI CR-2600TE, does not support the REZERO command and is
therefore not going to work, at least with the acd driver I have running
now.

Now my question is, and this is why I'm cc:ing this to -current is, has this
particular problem been addressed in the current release(s) of FreeBSD.  The
thread that addressed this particular issue (in -current) was about 5 months
old.

Incase anyone was interested the URL to that thread is..

b/text/1998/freebsd-current/19981108.freebsd-current

Thanks again, guess I'll be putting the burner back in the winblowz 98
machine unless someone can help me out with a fix.

Subject: unable to use cdrecord on an ATAPI CD-R under 2.2.8.


Hello,
 I'm trying to use my ATAPI cd-r on my 2.2.8 box and am having no success at
all.
I have the acd device in my kernel and it detects just fine upone startup.
And I can mount /dev/wcd0c just fine.

	acd0: drive speed 1377KB/sec, 2048KB cache
	acd0: supported read  types: CD-R, CD-RW, CD-DA
	acd0: supported write types: CD-R, test write
	acd0: Audio: play, 2 volume levels
	acd0: Mechanism: ejectable tray
	acd0: Medium: no/blank disc inside, unlocked

I have tried to use the cdrecord's -scanbus option to try and get starting
and what I get is the following...

	Cdrecord release 1.6.1 Copyright (C) 1995-1998 Jörg Schilling
	cdrecord: No such file or directory. Cannot open SCSI driver.

Ok, it uses /dev/scgx, so I did 'ln -s /dev/rcd0.ctl /dev/scgx' and I still
get the above error.

So NOW i'm trying to specify the device name on the command line, as it says
on the man page I can do.  'cdrecord -scanbus dev=/dev/rcd0.ctl:0,4,0'
	Cdrecord release 1.6.1 Copyright (C) 1995-1998 Jörg Schilling
	scsidev: '/dev/rcd0.ctl:0,4,0'
	devname: '/dev/rcd0.ctl'
	scsibus: 0 target: 4 lun: 0
	cdrecord: Device not configured. Cannot open SCSI driver.

If i try similar things such as /dev/rcd0a, /dev/rcd0c, I get the same above
error.
I've tried MAKEDEV wcd0, acd0, rcd0.  With no luck.. MAKEDEV doesn't even
recognize acd0.  SO, I'm out of ideas, I know others out there are using
this thing because I see enough traffic on the mailing list.  But does
anyone out there know how to help me with this issue?

-Chris
