I need to download a driver for my Marvell Yukon network card, I am getting it from the internet using my toshiba laptop, I used a memorex cd-rw cd to write the information on..fine; when I go to freebsd I cannot mount my drive and it gives me the following:

: g_vfs_done():acd0[READ(offset=3278, length=2048)]error=5
mount_cd9660: /dev/acd0: Input/output error
also if I go to use a regular once writable cd my cdrom wont let me use it at all and gives me:

D\: is not accessible             if I then go to format it it says...

Write once media such as cd-r or dvd-r is not supported by this version of DLA

Can you mount normal factory CD in both drives?

What is the speed rating of writer and reader and media?

What software you were using to record CD-RW?

What is DLA?

What software on which system you use to write CD-RW???

error 5 - I/O error (see /usr/include/sys/errno.h)

6.1 is no longer supported. sk and msk are present on both 7.0 and 6.3 and later.

Regarding disk format: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Disk_Format#Native_OS_support

Basically XP writes UDF disk v2.0 which is unreadable by FreeBSD
In contrast 2000 writes either media in form FreeBSD is able to understand.

10 years old method of blanking CD-RW and writing single-session ISO9660 content works well even with all the devices and systems (consider purchasing 4x fast CD-RW for very old CD player like in your car)
