17.3 is about partitioning and formatting - you don't need to do any of
that, since you;ve already been able to use the device on another machine.

You can safely remove it anytime it's not mounted.

It's mount_msdosfs, but otherwise that should work.  I've seen devices
where the only partition showed up as /dev/da0s4, so it might be worth
checking which /dev/da0s* nodes were actually created, or run 'fdisk da0'
to see the partition table data.
