I have a puzzling problem. I'm sure I just missed something simple, but I can't figure out what.
I added a drive to my system as Master on controller 2. After turning back on, I found I couldn't see that 80 GB drive on my system. I turned it off, checked all settings, then turned it back on and verified that the BIOS can see it - it's properly listed as an 80 GB Samsung as Master on 2. It sounds normal, looks normal and I can feel it spin up. But I still don't see it on my system to mount it. I had just done this process with a 40 GB drive and it worked just fine, so I knew that I knew how to do it. That one showed up in dmesg and was easily mounted. For what it's worth, my Linux desktop, when I hook this drive up to an oddball USB-ATA adapter, acts exactly like it does with every OTHER drive I've pulled out of a FreeBSD box - it sees it but hasn't a clue how to mount it properly. So I don't think the drive is a dud or anything. It was in use until a few weeks ago. I will be verifying the drive is seen OK on another system shortly, but I'd thought I'd throw this out there before then to see if anyone has any ideas,. If someone would be so kind as to point me to some relevant help, I would greatly appreciate it.
