On my new FreeBSD workstation I am trying to read data off of a USB
'key' flash memory stick recorded using rsync on a CentOS-6 system. I
was able to do this successfully up until the point that I inserted
another usb stick. Now I cannot mount or read either.
I probably made things worse by first removing both keys from the host
and then deleting the contents of /media. However, that is done.
At the moment what happens is that upon insertion the 'computer'
browser pane will display a filesystem labelled 'USB Drive' but I
cannot open it for viewing. Neither does a mount command show in the
right-click popup menu.
Rebooting the system does not return the system to its former behaviour.
How is this fixed? Is it not possible to have two USB drives mounted
