Default SOLVED -- mount_msdosfs /dev/da0: : Invalid argument

I am running FreeBSD 7.2 with the stock kernel.
I am logged in as root (yeah, I know...)
I plug a USB memory stick into a USB port and I type camcontrol devlist. The computer responds with:
< USB Flash Memory 5.00 > at scbus 0 target 0 lun 0 (pass0,da0)

Permissions for /mnt are 777.

I go into /etc/fstab and add the following line:
/dev/da0 /mnt msdosfs rw,noauto 0 0

I type
mount -t msdosfs /dev/da0 /mnt

And the computer responds
mount_msdosfs /dev/da0: : Invalid argument

?!?!?!?! What am I doing wrong?
