I have been using usbd.conf for a workaround. Maybe clumsy but it
works for me!

In my usbd.conf I have:

device "Sony Ericsson W810i"
   devname "umass[0-9]+"
   vendor  0x0fce
   product 0xe042
   attach "sleep 5 ; /sbin/mount -t msdos /dev/da1 /mnt ; /etc/rc.d/devfs 

As I said, this works for me but it seams to be a bit stupid that this
kind of workaround is needed...

Thanks for listening!!!
