You need to have usbd running (usbd_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf), and have some options in the kernel: device scbus # SCSI bus device pass # SCSI passthrough device device da # SCSI disk device (for umass) Maybe doing a '# kldload umass' with a stock GENERIC kernel will also work, I don't know. At any rate, when you plug it in, the kernel should discover a new da device, da0 in my case since I don't have any other SCSI disks: Jan 1 20:01:26 firsa /kernel: umass0: SanDisk Corporation ImageMate CompactFlash USB, rev 1.10/0.09, addr 2 Jan 1 20:01:26 firsa /kernel: umass0: Get Max Lun not supported (STALLED) Jan 1 20:01:27 firsa /kernel: da0 at umass-sim0 bus 0 target 0 lun 0 Jan 1 20:01:27 firsa /kernel: da0: <SanDisk ImageMate II 1.30> Removable Direct Access SCSI-2 device Jan 1 20:01:27 firsa /kernel: da0: 650KB/s transfers Jan 1 20:01:27 firsa /kernel: da0: 122MB (250881 512 byte sectors: 64H 32S/T 122C) I was then able to do something like # mount -t msdos /dev/da0s1 /foo To access the data. Note that my CF has partitions (?!) which took me a while to figure out. It may be that your camera doesn't need that in which case you need to do 'mount /dev/da0 /foo' of course. Note that I have a card reader in which I plug my compact flash card; some digital cameras don't have umass access but need their own protocol, for which gphoto is likely to have support (as another poster alread said).
