I have a Sony Walkman player that I see the same type of thing, only with 
"using ATAPI" instead of "using SCSI".  With various combinations of 
"disklabel sd0" and "scsictl sd0 start", I can usually get it into an 
online state and access it.  I don't know whether this would work or not
in your case.
