How would you feel about becoming the owner of a Plextor PX-755SA DVD-RW
drive, free of charge? I have one which I've used, and it works on
Windows and FreeBSD without any issue (tested on both nForce 4 Ultra and
nForce 650i chipsets). You could keep the drive, as my way of saying
"thanks for your troubleshooting help" (I may not be able to help you
directly with ATAPI problems, but I can almost always help dedicated
people out when it comes to hardware...)

This would at least help in narrowing down whether your DVD-RW drive
tickles a bug in FreeBSD, is incompatible with your chipset, or is by
itself somehow faulty.

Let me know, and/or provide an address (privately) and I will ship it
off to you within a week.
