I have a camera that is detected as an 'umass' storage device, and it
appears as '/dev/da0' (strangely I can use it as a common storage
device). This is my configuration:

kernel options:

device scbus
device da
device pass
device uhci
device ohci
device usb
device umass
device ehci

'/etc/rc.conf' options:


To test it you can:

1) Check the devices in '/dev/daX'.
2) # camcontrol devlist
3) Check the boot messages (umass and da) and the messages printed when
you plug the device.

To mount it you have to select a slice (if it has data stored in):

mount -t msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt

Hope that helps.
