Help with devd.conf

I'm trying to understand devd.conf to auto mount usb devices. For
example I have a usb drive that will show up as da1 so as a test I just
want to write something to syslog when it is plugged in.
This is what I have tried in devd.conf:
match "system" "DEVFS";
match "subsystem" "CDEV";
match "type" "CREATE";
match "cdev" "da[1-9]+";
action "logger you plugged in some usb device";
match "system" "USB";
match "subsytem" "DEVICE";
match "type" "ATTACH";
action "logger some type of usb thing attached";
With either of these the message does not get logged. I have tried
different priorities and that doesn't make a difference. I have also
tried using attach instead of notify and that seems to trigger
something, but then I get an error message:
SCSI sense: UNIT ATTENTION asc:28,0 (Not ready to ready change, medium
may have changed)
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
