Depending on the file system, you might need to try which
mount option you'll need. For example, if this is a DOS (FAT)
formatted device, something like
# mount -t msdos -o ro /dev/da0 /mnt
might work. Check the partitioning (if you need to access
it vial /dev/da0 or /dev/da0s1). The file system type can
be identified with the command
# file -s /dev/da0
or applied to /dev/da0s1 (as mentioned above).
In some cases, it's required to "re-taste" the device. The
# true > /dev/da0
will do this.
As I said, the file system type matters. If it's NTFS, install
fuse and use its NTFS module. Also look at "man mount" if there
are options that you'd find handy, such as -r (or -o ro), as
well as -m, -M, or -o noatime.
When everything works as intended, create an entry in /etc/fstab.
It could look like this:
/dev/da0 /media/sd msdosfs rw,noauto,noatime,-m=644,-M=755 0 0
See "man 5 fstab" for details.
