I have a Sony Microvault (USM 128) that i would love to get
to work on fbsd 4.8 stable.
When i plug it in the following appears in messages
Jun 6 12:07:25 rollo /kernel: umass0: Sony USB Storage
Media, rev 1.10/2.00, addr 4
Jun 6 12:07:25 rollo /kernel:
umass0: Get Max Lun not supported (SHORT_XFER)
The poblem is that for some reason it doesn't connect it to
da0. I am using an IDE cd-burner via scsi emulation and that
Jun 6 08:53:21 rollo /kernel: cd0 at ata0 bus 0 target 0
I am also using an USB mouse without problems, so i guess
its not related to usbd.
Any clues would be greatly appreciated!
