salishan> Greetings. I have a PLEXTOR CD-ROM PX-32TS SCSI drive

salishan> Any suggestions on how to fix this?

I don't see problems with the Plextor drives in my system.
Excerpt from dmesg:
cd1 at ahc1 bus 0 target 3 lun 0
cd1: <PLEXTOR CD-R PX-R412C 1.04> Removable CD-ROM SCSI-2 device
cd1: 10.0MB/s transfers (10.0MHz, offset 8)
cd1: Attempt to query device size failed: NOT READY, Medium not present
cd0 at ahc0 bus 0 target 3 lun 0
cd0: <PLEXTOR CD-ROM PX-32TS 1.02> Removable CD-ROM SCSI-2 device
cd0: 20.0MB/s transfers (20.0MHz, offset 15)
cd0: Attempt to query device size failed: NOT READY, Medium not present
The kernel version is:
FreeBSD trinity.radio-do.de 3.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 3.0-CURRENT #1: Tue Jan 12 19:30:22 CET 1999
Most problems with scsi arise from wrong termination or bad cables. You should check that both are fine.
