I have a 400GB seagate IDE hdd with backed up data that I need to load onto
a machine running freebsd 6.2

The drive is formated for fat32 and when I run the command:

mount -t msdos /dev/ad2s2 /mnt/audio/

I get the following error:

"mountmsdosfs(): disk too big, sorry"

Is there a solution to this?

Why on earth would you want to create a 400GB MSDOSFS formatted disk? MSDOSFS was quick but offered no protection against power outages or incomplete writes, and was horrible in terms of disk fragmentation..

If you really want MSDOSFS for whatever reason, just break up the disk into smaller chunks partition-wise (IIRC 100GB chunks are fine).
