cale:/tmp# sysctl vfs.usermount
vfs.usermount: 1

in /etc/devfs.conf:
perm    xpt0    0660
perm    pass0   0660
perm    cd0     0660
link    cd0     cdrom
link    acd0    acd0c

cale:/dev# ll cd*
crw-rw----  1 root  operator  -   4,  27 28 Dez 21:57:24 2003 cd0
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel     -        5 28 Dez 21:57:40 2003 cdrom -> cd0

Is your user in the correct group? (operator in my example)
Note: I'm using atapicam so you should consider cd0 as acd0
