USB Mass Storage problem after upgrade...

I upgraded last night from 6.0-RELEASE p2 to 6.0-RELEASE p4, and I'm now having difficulty mounting my cheap USB mass storage MP3 player.

When I plug it in, the device is created properly, but when I try to mount it with "mount -t msdos /dev/da0s1 ~/mnt" I get "mount_msdosfs: /dev/da0s1: Invalid argument".

I've umass.ko loaded as a module. The kernel is custom, but consists of GENERIC minus the uscanner device. My SD Card reader still mounts fine.

Here's a tail of /var/log/messages:

Feb 14 09:35:05 desktop kernel: umass0: detached

Feb 14 09:46:07 desktop kernel: Next free cluster in FSInfo (122912) exceeds maxcluster (122896)

Can anyone offer me advice on how to resolve this?
