I experienced that phenomena of a drive not being recognized once also.
However, after formatting it in Windows why duplicate it again in
FreeBSD? It serves no purpose that I am aware of. By the way, it is too
bad that FreeBSD is not able to take advantage of the "exFat" format
like other distributions do.
