Seems to be the same "issue" I just had. See the mailing
list archives of the last few days. 

In short: method (a)
	# true > /dev/da0
	# true > /dev/da1
	# true > /dev/da2
	# true > /dev/da3
or method (b)
	# mount /dev/da0 /mnt
	# mount /dev/da1 /mnt
	# mount /dev/da2 /mnt
	# mount /dev/da3 /mnt
will cause the proper device nodes (e. g. /dev/da0s1, /dev/da1s1,
/dev/da2s1 and  /dev/da3s1) corresponding to inserted media to
appear. Those can then be mounted in the usual way.
