I thought for Windows XP most USB storage devices don't need additional
software to work. My digital camera for example (a nifty Sony Cyber-shot
DSC-F77A), you can connect and disconnect and they get mounted/dismounted
automatically as an external drive. Tried to do the same in FreeBSD via
devd, in /etc/dev.conf:-

attach 0 {
      device-name "umass[0-9]+";
      action "(sleep 2; mount /mnt/digicam)&";
detach 0 {
      device-name "umass[0-9]+";
      action "(sleep 2; umount -f /mnt/digicam)&";

with the line in /etc/fstab:-
/dev/da0s1   /mnt/digicam   msdosfs   rw,noauto   0   0

Attaching my usb digicam (mine is a nifty Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F77A) works
great, but detaching it has random effects (ranging from works with system
intact to instant kernel panic). Resorted to unmount first before
detaching (when I remember to do so ;-) ). Any similar experience, and
should I send-pr?
