Check "dmesg" and see where the cdrom device got registered. It'll probably be something like:
cd0 at scsibus0 targ 0 lun 0: <LG, CD-ROM CRN-8241B, 1.22> SCSI0 5/cdrom removable
cd0(pciide0:1:0): using PIO mode 4, DMA mode 2
Or not... most likely FreeBSD supports it, I've seen way too many USB devices work with the more obscure OpenBSD, so I assume it'll get a read. Most likely though it will just be /dev/cd0
