[PC-BSD Support] Cannot Load CDROM

I have, for a few days been trying to figure out what could be the problem
with my system. Out of no where, I cannot seem to read any CD's; music or

Any CD that I place in the cdrom drive, I cannot read it. I have tried to
force a mount from console but I end up with the mount command remaining in
a frozen state forever. I cannot even kill -9 or kill -KILL the mount

The only change that I had was to install java.

I have tried to stop hald from probing the cd drive, but I end up with no
symlink found between cd0 and cdrom0.

Any ideas on this?

PS: I was tempted to upgrade to the latest FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE, but came
across a thread that suggests *not* to go down this road doe to numerous
custom configs. Is there an availability of an upgrade PCBSD-way?


Of course, you might discount this possibility, but remember that one in
a million chances happen 99% of the time.
