1) I am also trying to mount a usb hard drive. I have found a number of articles on doing this but none of them seem to work completely or the articles reference older versions of FreeBSD and I cannot seem to find an analogous thing in a Release 4.8.
My motherboard has two built-in USB1.0 ports. When I plug in my drive I get: Umass0: In system Design USB Storage Adapter, rev 2.00/11.05, addr 2 da0 at umass-sim0 bus 0 target 0 lun 0 da0: <IC25N030 ATSC04-0 CA30> Fixed Direct Access SCSI-0 device da0: 650KB/s transfers da0: 28615MB (58605120 512 byte sectors: 64H 32S/T 28615C) This is great (I think). I am able mount the drive by doing a: mount -t msdos /dev/da0s1 /usb I then get a msg saying: (da0:umass-sim0:0:0:0): Read(6)/write(6) not supported, increasing the minimum_cmd_size to 10. I do a "df" and I see the drive listed. I can see the files and navigate the drive. In fact I added this mount cmd to my fstab with a noauto option I do a "umount /usb" then a "df" and I see that the drive is no longer listed. When I physically disconnect the drive from the mother board I get: #umass0: at hub0 port 1 (addr 2) disconnected (da0:umass-sim0:0:0): lost device (da0:umass-sim0:0:0): removing device entry umass0: detached My intuition tells me this is not good. If I then plug the device into the next USB1.0 port I get: umass0: In system Design USB Storage Adapter, rev 2.00/11.05, addr 2 umass0: BBB reset failed, TIMEOUT umass0: BBB bulk-in clear stall failed, TIMEOUT umass0: BBB bulk-out clear stall failed, TIMEOUT over and over again then (da0:umass-sim0:0:0:0): got CAM status 0x4 (da0:umass-sim0:0:0:0): fatal error, failed to attach to device (da0:umass-sim0:0:0:0): lost device (da0:umass-sim0:0:0:0): removing device entry Does anyone have any ideas on how to address this/fix this? 2) My next question is kind of related but different. I have a PCI card that has 3 x USB2.0 ports and 2 x ieee1394 ports (Smartdisk with a NEC OHCI Compliant IEEE1394 Host Controller IRQ3 PCI Slot 3 PCI bus2, device15, function0). a) How do I confirm that FreeBSD is aware of the card and that the driver is operating correctly etc. How do I do that for my Ethernet card for that matter? During my install there were no conflicts. On boot-up it seems FreeBSD is able to recognize it. b) If/when I plug it a USB/Firewire drive into this card how is the "device name" specified? Or is there a command to figure this out? c) Is msdos the correct "filesystem" designation? d) How can I mount/unmount the drive? Is the firewire port different. e) How are the multiple usb/firewire ports designated/handled? _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
