Unfortunately, this isn't one of mine, so I can't claim credit ;)

See if there is a slice for the device, e.g. /dev/da0s1. Also, you can try
a fdisk on the device, in case it doesn't use the first slice (I've yet
to see this on USB devices, but ZIP drives used to use slice 4 for their
"DOS" partition).

If you still can't get it to work, drop me a line, and I can try to provide
some other pointers. On most devices, its a matter of tweaking the protocol
settings in umass.c.

You should be able to set something up in /etc/usbd.conf for attach. Detach
may be a bit tricker, as you should unmount the filesystem before pulling the
