Tested-twice foolproof mounting FAT32 thumbdrive on FreeBSD
...camcontrol rescan all
...mount_msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /thdrive
(....Expected error "no such file or directory" or "invalid argument")
...mount_msdosfs /dev/da0 /thdrive
(...Same expected error(s)) (the other one of the one which first appears)
....mount_msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /thdrive
Note the first and third mount commands are the same.
I forget if mount_msdosfs is deprecated or not
same OS, _6, on 2 different laptops, same thumbdrive
Tip maybe useful for usb hard drive mounting, etc. esp. if one
keeps getting the same two errors repeatedly
FreeBSD v9... pkg2ng somewhat working...

This sort of thing is a side-effect of things like U3-enabled disks. The actual node doesn't show up until the device is 'kicked'. I think that it is the programming in the device itself that is causing it.
If you have a U3-enabled drive, I recommend you use the utility to strip the U3-good/badness out of it. (Back up your data first, as the utility also wipes the drive!!)
If you don't have a U3-enabled drive - Keep it that way!
The only dumb question is a question not asked.
The only dumb answer is an answer not given.
