Mounting CDROM, USB Thumb Drive in FreeBSD 6.0 **SOLVED**
I recently installed FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE, and I have a couple of very basic questions. First, how do I set up the CDROM drive so that it's mountable/unmountable by regular users, or (for extra points) so that it automounts on insertion of a disc? Note that I can mount/umount just fine as root. That's not the issue.
I've looked at my /etc/fstab and the "options" column has ro, noauto. In Linux I simply needed to add users to the end of this column and all was well. In FreeBSD it tells me that "users" is not a valid option.
I also have a 512MB USB Thumb Drive that I would like to mount. I tried this:
Where /dev/da0 was what showed up in my dmesg output. I got an "invalid option" error.
mount_msdosfs /dev/da0 /mnt/usbdisk
Try this and tell me if it worked for you.
I had the same problems you do.
I used this for my memorex drive.
mount_msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt
