Set linux_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf and make sure you are mounting 
linprocfs:
/etc/fstab:
# Device            Mountpoint    FStype    Options        Dump    Pass#
linproc                /compat/linux/proc linprocfs rw        0    0


Check dmesg(8) or other system logs after trying to use flash and see if 
anything is being logged.
