I've just cobbled together a new machine and purchased a LITE-ON LTR-52327S CD-RW for it. FreeBSD, however, seems unable to detect the drive. On boot, there is no acd device shown at all, however I do get an ACPI error. (dmesg will follow)
I can boot from the 5.1-R install CD with no problem, however when I select cd/dvd as the install media, it claims that there is no dvd/cd drive found!?!?!. I also get a 'drive full error usually when i boot from CD and install from FTP as soon as the data starts writing to the hard drive. The fdisk and newfs stages seem to complete normally prior to this. I ended up installing from floppy. The seagate is the master and the lite-on is the slave on the primary bus. I'm using a new ata 66/100/133 cable. I plan to get a second ata cable this afternoon and try to put them on seperate busses, however i'm not sure that's the problem. Any suggestions on what I should look for or what might be wrong? Anything goes. Thank you. -Stephen Copyright (c) 1992-2003 The FreeBSD Project.
