Description papowell 2013-09-05 18:20:01 UTC
FreeBSD Handbook, Section 22.3.2. VirtualBox Host DVD/CD Access

(Note: see https://wiki.freebsd.org/VirtualBox for the source of this information)

In the Wiki, we have:

Host DVD/CD access

atapicam kernel module needs to be loaded via /boot/loader.conf:

atapicam_load="YES" 

This is missing in the Handbook.  It is necessary.

Fix: 

Update FreeBSD Handbook documentation.
How-To-Repeat: Run VirtualBox without atapicam enabled and you will not be able to access host DVD/CD reader.
