I am running stable, upgraded from release about two weeks ago. I am
under the impression that in addition to device atapicam you also need:
You may also want to investigate cdrtools. I am currently using 2.0,
although this version is not in the ports as of yet.
And, to make a long story short, I have been having problems getting
this to work correctly. I suspect the problem is not strictly a 'BSD one per
se, because I can mount cdrom drives as /dev/cd0c and copy files from them
at the console, but it all goes to pot when I bring up X and KDE. My ATAPI
burner is a Sony CRX215A1. My other cdrom is a memorex 48X. In cdroast I
