It IS possible to use a cdrom player with MacBSD:

regjit.root 103:mount 
/dev/sd1a on / type ufs (local) 
/dev/sd0g on /smalldisk type ufs (local) 
/dev/cd0a on /cdrom type cd9660 (local, read-only)

It would have been helpfull if you included the output from "dmesg" in 
your posting. This is what I see:

 targ 4 lun 0: <PHILIPS, CM 210, 1.04> SCSI1 5/cdrom removable
cd0 at scsibus0: cd present, 294901 x 2048 byte records

If you don't see anything that does resemble this, I guess you're out of 
luck. Maybe upgrading to a newer kernel will help.
