Hello!. I've been trying to mount my flash memory but it just doesn't let me.
I use (as root):

mount -t msdosfs /dev/ad0 /flash

The feedback is something like "device ad0 doesn't allow action" Can anybody help me?

Are you sure that /dev/ad0 is actually your flash device? That doesn't look right to me. What is the physical interface to your flash memory? That is, is it USB, a PCMCIA card, or what?

Sorry, I'd already forgotten that the subject line said USB. Given USB, it will be seen by the system as a SCSI device. I think you would have to add "device atapicam" to your kernel config, but not sure about that.

Anyway, here's what I did in a similar situation: watch the console while you plug in the USB device. The system should recognize the device and tell you right there what the name is. My USB camera showed up as da0s1, and I'm able to mount and umount it all day.
