Hi there:

I have a CF reader and I have problems on access on it. I've used
from MacOS X but the machine are not currently on my hands (it's property
of my last employer) and I suppose that FreeBSD is capable of doing
thing on it.

The reader is a Transcend, below is what dmesg says about it.
I'm using 4.9-RELEASE (I haven't easy access to the net and I have not
phone line at home 8-(( ).

I have
device atapicam
on my custom kernel.

The device appears on dmesg:

zolocho# dmesg | grep umass
umass0: ScanLogic SSFDC-CF 0.74! ScanLogic SSFDC-CF 0.74!, rev 1.10/0.74, addr 3

I've searched on man pages. So, camcontrol says:

zolocho# camcontrol devlist -v
scbus0 on ata0 bus 0:
< > at scbus0 target -1 lun -1 ()
scbus1 on ata1 bus 0:
<IDE DVD-ROM 16X 2.0> at scbus1 target 0 lun 0 (pass0,cd0)
<PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W4824A 1.04> at scbus1 target 1 lun 0 (pass1,cd1)
< > at scbus1 target -1 lun -1 ()
scbus2 on umass-sim0 bus 0:
<ScanLogi c SSFDC-CF 0.74! > at scbus2 target 0 lun 0 (probe0)
< > at scbus2 target -1 lun -1 ()
scbus-1 on xpt0 bus 0:
< > at scbus-1 target -1 lun -1 (xpt0)

As I can read on man umass(4) I've scanned with umass my multislot card
reader (is cf and sc capable)

zolocho# camcontrol rescan 0:0:0
Re-scan of 0:0:0 was successful
zolocho# camcontrol rescan 0:0:1
Re-scan of 0:0:1 was successful
zolocho# camcontrol rescan 0:0:2
Re-scan of 0:0:2 was successful
zolocho# camcontrol rescan 0:0:3
Re-scan of 0:0:3 was successful

Well, It seems that I can access to the decive.

So, I'll try to fsck it:

fsck da0

Ops!. Reboot

I've tryed with:

disklabel -w -r da0 cf

Ops! Reboot

I've found another one anyonning thing:

zolocho# sh ./MAKEDEV da0
zolocho# cd -
zolocho# camcontrol start da0
camcontrol: cam_lookup_pass: CAMGETPASSTHRU ioctl failed
cam_lookup_pass: No such file or directory
cam_lookup_pass: either the pass driver isn't in your kernel
cam_lookup_pass: or da0 doesn't exist

Definitively I have da0 created and I do have pass driver on
my kernel.

I don't know very good this kind of devices but I have seen that
in Linux is veeery easy.
*Without* atapicam on the kernel was possible doing

camcontrol start da0

but anything related to fsck'ing the
device, newfs the device or anything, give me another one
system's freeze.

I have checked on FreeSBIE (as you know a FreeBSD 5.X-based LiveCD) but
the result was not better.

I've seen the work done on Linux but I won't install a Linux just to
create a cf'ed *FreeBSD* image. ;-)

Can you point me, please?.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards
