@tetrodozombie, that will only work if there is a recognized MBR partition with an MS-DOS (FAT) file system on it.

The device that mounted, per the post, was sd0. To see what MBR partitions are on the drive, ratavid can try:
# fdisk sd0
If one (or more) of those partitions is FATnn, then ratavid can use:
# disklabel sd0
to see if the MBR partition(s) have been assigned virtual BSD partition letters. These start with "i", if "i" is unused.

(EXT2/3, FATnn, CD9660, and UDF are the only supported foreign media-based filesystems supported by the project. NTFS is experimental, requires a custom kernel, and has other caveats.)
