    Mounting portable floppy (USB) on DELL 2950


    Hello,
    I am running FreeBSD 6.3 on a Dell 2950. I have a portable external floppy drive that I am attempting to mount. The floppy connects to the server via USB.

    Before the 2950, I used a Dell 1950 with FreeBSD 4.11. I used the following command to successfully mount the drive on the 1950, (BSD 4.11):
    mount -t msdos /dev/da1 /mnt/floppy

    When I run this same command on the 2950, I receive the following output:
    mount_msdosfs: /dev/da1: No such file or directory.

    Any ideas?

    Did you try with da0s1 ???

    i use da0s1 to mount my Pendrive (Kingston Data Traveler) on FreeBSD 7.0, and 6.2, i think that could be the same with your USB Floppy Drive.

    its an idea, i dont knof if it will work.

    See you
