After some further testing, a vcd in the dvd drive will have the same problem during booting the kernel(before init). After killing the system and rebooting without the disc, trying to play the disc causes messages like this repeatedly. I tried running "cdcontrol -f /dev/acd1 eject" and it hung. I tried "atacontrol reinit ata3" and "atacontrol detach ata3" and those hung as well. It's an sata dvd-rw drive over atapi. Here's the error being reported by the kernel.

acd1: TIMEOUT - READ_BIG retrying (1 retry left)
acd1: TIMEOUT - READ_BIG retrying (0 retries left)
acd1: FAILURE - READ_BIG timed out

Mplayer just triggers the problem. I imagine if I ran amd I'd have the same type of problem, or any program that tried to read from acd1. Other than locking up tty's and not being able to shut down, the system's still usable, aside from the disc inserted during boot of course.

I get the exact same symptoms when booting with an audio cd in the drive. I haven't done too much about it as I rarely stuff such things in my box, but the cd/dvd part of fbsd7 still appears somewhat flakey. I see the "INQUIRY ILLEGAL REQUEST" below on several boxes. On this particular machine "atapicd" is commented out in its i386-based custom kernel config, but it makes no difference as far as this warning/error is concerned.
