maybe if you do
da0s1
da0
da0s1
the third time will work. Worked here on a thumbdrive, maybe
with camcontrol -a (or -all) also.
or maybe the da0s1 are da0s1a ...

Is da0s1 a FAT partition? Is da0s1 the correct device name?

hmmm, maybe you are right. What if the external hard disk is NTFS partition? How do i mount it? As da0s1, I'm not very sure because i use that to mount pendrive all the time.
