I am writing to this list because I haven't found anything that helps
me in the 'web' nor in usenet.
First I have to apologize for my bad english and mey bad knowing of
what I'm doing with FreeBSD, I am not a 'hacker' but just a user.

Well my problem is mounting my digital camera. If I remember correctly
I did it with 
mount_msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /lumix
I think that was under FreeBSD 6.n
But now, upgraded to 7.2, there ist no /dev/da0.
Attached to an iBook with Mac OS X 10.4 the cards were well mounted as

If I attach the camera to the FreeBSD PC the console gives
[attaching the camera]
| umass0: <Panasonic DMC-FX8, class 0/0, rev 1.10/0.10, addr 4> on
|(probe0:umass-sim0:0:0:0): TEST UNIT READY. CDB: 0 0 0 0 0 0
|(probe0:umass-sim0:0:0:0): CAM Status: SCSI Status Error

|da0: <MATSHITA DMC-FX8 0100> Removable Direct Access SCSI-2 device
|da0: 1.000MB/s transfers
|da0: 14MB (29121 512 byte sectors: 64H 32S/T 14C)

But there is no /dev/da0
# ls /dev/da*
ls: No match.

If I detach it the console writes
[detaching the camera]
| umass0: at uhub0 port 8 (addr 4) disconnected
|(da0:umass-sim0:0:0:0): lost device
|(da0:umass-sim0:0:0:0): Synchronize cache failed, status == 0x39, scsi
|status ==
| 0x0
|(da0:umass-sim0:0:0:0): removing device entry
|umass0: detached

I haven't any clue if it's FreeBSD's fault, the camera's or mine.
Is there somone who can give me some hint?
