Hi, I'm trying to mount a 160 GB Western Digital USB 2.0 drive on a
FreeBSD 6.2 system.  This seemed like it should be relatively simple,
but:

webmail# mount /dev/da0s1 /mnt/usbdrive
mount: /dev/da0s1 on /mnt/usbdrive: incorrect super block

OK, it seemed a good chance the USB drive was formatted with NTFS, so I tried:

webmail# mount_ntfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt/usbdrive
mount_ntfs: /dev/da0s1: Invalid argument

Further reading on mount_ntfs suggested that even if I got it to
work, it's not quite what I want:  I want read & write access
with compressed files supported.

dmesg:
umass0: Western Digital External HDD, rev 2.00/1.04, addr 2

 usbdevs -v

Any help appreciated.
