My kernel config already includes all that.

Just installed OpenBSD, and the other drives work just fine. I guess
that's my OS.

Quite disappointing that FreeBSD is actually behind in terms of
hardware support, particularly for a relatively popular motherboard.

Your motherboard (and most importantly the chipset it uses) are recent,
so 6.2 might not have hardware support quite yet.. 7-CURRENT might be
your next best bet if the following doesn't work.

Here's what I have for my kernel config though for the device drivers
section, related to PATA/CD/DVD stuff:

# ATA and ATAPI devices
device          ata
device          atadisk         # ATA disk drives
device          ataraid         # ATA RAID drives
device          atapicd         # ATAPI CDROM drives
device          atapifd         # ATAPI floppy drives
device          atapicam
options         ATA_STATIC_ID   # Static device numbering

# SCSI peripherals
device          scbus           # SCSI bus (required for SCSI)
device          ch              # SCSI media changers
device          da              # Direct Access (disks)
device          cd              # CD
device          pass            # Passthrough device (direct SCSI access)

Cheers,

Well, unfortunately that's the price you pay when you run something stable. I'm pretty sure 7-CURRENT runs it without any problems.

As a sidenote, sometimes backporting through versions isn't really possible.
