It was /dev/ad2, and not USB because this was a CF to IDE adapter that plugs directly into the motherboard. I had another CF that I did not want to overwrite, but I used it anyway, and it works fine. Further testing showed the CF I asked about has some issue, and it has been RMAed. Only good news is their "Two day RMA approval" only took half a day, so I shipped it very quickly. --Eric _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
