some ideas: check the fs-type & if possible the version of the fs on your usb-hdd (maybe compat probs?) try attaching the drive b4 you power-on the box and boot try to explicitly (mount_xy and mount-args) mount the drive (ro!) check if the builtin hdd inside your drive can be attached directly on the ata/s-ata/whatever bus inside your machine; copy directly attach your usb-hdd to a working machine, copy via lan check for bios/fw-updates for your hw, maybe usb-support get's better hth & good luck! _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
