Got nearly the same results with the same CD on NetBSD 1.0 using a driver i 
once got from Charles. The CD read fine in other environments. This is silly 
because i stress tested the driver quite a bit since i got it.

When accessing any of the files in the directory mentioned i get continuous
"mcd0: timeout getting status"
"mcd0: retrying"
"mcd0: timeout reading data"
