How to mount a USB disk on FreeBSD

You can see your da-devices by

ls /dev/da*

If you see e.g. /dev/da0s1 listed, try mounting with

mount_msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /media/usb

If you have set up sudo correctly you can do it as an ordinary user

sudo mount_msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /media/usb

In my case, this worked:

mkdir /media/usb
mount_msdosfs /dev/da1p2 /media/usb
