I understand you may have an 80 pin cable on there and that you think
it must be good.
But the output you posted showed that the FreeBSD device driver thinks
you only have a 40 pin cable. Either that is a bug or the ata chipset
cannot sense your 80 pin cable. The obvious thing to do is to try
a different 80 pin cable.

Probably the FreeBSD handbook is the best place.
