Hi Everyone, I recently switched from FreeBSD 5.2.1 to 4.10 in the hope that it would solve my seemingly unsolvable Nvidia driver freeze issue. Alas, it did not. However, now that I am running FreeBSD 4.10 (and intend to stay with it) I am having an error when I insert my Prolific TDX MemoDisk 256Mb Flash Memory stick.
When I insert the stick, the following messages are displayed in the log and on the console that go something like this: Jul 23 16:20:48 UnixBox /kernel: uhub2: Prolific Technology Inc. USB_HUB, class 9/0, rev 2.00/0.01, addr 2 Jul 23 16:20:48 UnixBox /kernel: uhub2: 1 port with 0 removable, self powered Jul 23 16:20:49 UnixBox /kernel: umass0: Prolific Technology Inc.

There were signs of this problem on devices other than mine but the fixes for them unfortunately haven't worked for me. Also this device worked fine with FreeBSD 5.2.1 installed fresh from the box (Although I do now have my own kernel rolled). I would really appreciate some help if anyone knows what could be the issue. The flash stick works fine in other machines so it can't be hardware related. I've tried to include as much information as possible, but I feel I might be at a bit of a dead end. An attempt to mount the stick displays this: [EMAIL PROTECTED]:~$ sudo mount -t msdos /dev/da0 /mnt msdos: /dev/da0: Device not configured And the following gets written to the log and console when the above mount operation is attempted: Jul 23 17:04:35 UnixBox sudo: gavin : TTY=ttyv0 ; PWD=/usr/home/gavin ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/sbin/mount -t msdos -o ro /dev/da0 /mnt Jul 23 17:04:35 UnixBox /kernel: (da0:umass-sim0:0:0:0): READ CAPACITY.
