Hi there again,

Thank you for your answer. I do have da0s1 but
mount -t msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt/usbck
mount_msdosfs: /dev/da0s1: Invalid argument

Also, it is not a flash drive, it is an external USB drive with IDE hd
it (80 GB).

I will skip formatting as I can see your point. Thanks!

If it is a large hard disk, then it is probably worth it to make a UFS
filesystem on it.
You can do this very easily by running sysinstall. You will then have a
/dev/da0s1d to mount
In fact you may like to try mounting it as /dev/da0s1d right now and see
what happens...

No such file or directory when I ls /dev/da0sld

I am sure I have /dev/da0s1 on my system and it seems to be the 80GB USB
drive as confirmed by sysinstall (btw the system thinks it is a SCSI drive
then?). But back to this error:

 mount -t msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt/usbck
mount_msdosfs: /dev/da0s1: Invalid argument

When I try mount -a /dev/da0s1 /mnt/usbck, I get:
mount: /dev/da0s1 on /mnt/usbck: incorrect super block
Tried mount -t msdosfs /dev/da0s1d /mnt/usbck ?
Can you still help? :)

Thank you!

Yes, external USB disks / flash drives are handled as SCSI by the kernel, and you are right the da0 is your disk. Is ls /dev/da0s* showing anything else except da0s1 as a result? I am in front of my FreeBSD system right now, and I have (a UFS formatted) external 250Gb disk on it, I can see da0s1d on ls /dev/da0s* As an afterthought, and maybe dumb question, are you certain the disk is fat formatted and not someting else (i.e. NTFS)? _______________________________________________
