The CD in my Dell Latitude CP no longer can play audio CDs.

cd0 at atapibus0 drive 0: <CD-ROM  CDR_U200, , 1.12> cdrom removable
cd0: 32-bit data port
cd0: drive supports PIO mode 3, DMA mode 1
cd0(piixide0:1:0): using PIO mode 0, DMA mode 1 (using DMA data transfers)

Issuing cdplay play results in:

cd0(piixide0:1:0):  Check Condition on CDB: 0x5a 08 0e 00 00 00 00 00 18 00
    SENSE KEY:  Illegal Request
     ASC/ASCQ:  Illegal Field in CDB

Get a machine with a CD drive old enough.  Try to play an audio CD.
The quick workaround I used was to disable the use of SMS_DBD in sys/dev/scsipi/cd.c

Note that  sd.c  had a similar issue fixed by:

| Some older devices do not understand the `disable block descriptors' bit in
| the mode sense request. So fall back on mode sense data including a block
| descriptor section.
| XXX this applies to the `page 4' case. The `page 5' didn't consider the
| possible presence of a block descriptor at all, though it did allow the
| device to return one.  While that's fixed now, the `page 5' mode sense
| does not use the `disable block descriptors' bit.
| I'm not sure we should bother with this at all..
