Hi there. I hope you guys are doing well and having fun. I just got
myself a new toy, a cdrom, and I'm trying it out under FreeBSD.
However, I've run into a snag that I couldn't answer on the doc pages
or the faq. Note that I just recompiled the kernel today (FreeBSD 2.1
Release #0) to make sure there was a cdrom driver in there. (That fixed
an earlier problem: "device not configured". The faq says that this
is usually caused by the cd player being empty, but recompiling the
kernel solved it.)

In DOS, I don't seem to have any problems playing the CD. In FreeBSD,
using cdplay gives me the following:

localhost: {1} cdplay cd0
CD>play 1 2
cdplay: Invalid argument
CD>setdebug
CD>play 1 12
cdplay: Invalid argument
CD>status
status track minute second frame
21 01 0 0 0
CD>reset
CD>status
status track minute second frame
-1 01 0 0 0
cdplay: Input/output error
CD>quit
localhost: {2}

xcdplayer gives me something like this when I try to play a track:
ioctl(cdromplaymsftrk): Invalid argument

Anyone have any ideas as to what I might be doing wrong?
I'd be grateful for suggestions you might have.

Thanks
David Pullara
