Got this little mp3 player for Xmas and now am trying to use it on my freebsd box. Every time I plug it in I get this error from dmesg:

Code:
ugen3.2: <COBY Corp.> at usbus3
umass1: <COBY Corp. COBY MP3 Player, class 0/0, rev 2.00/0.02, addr 2> on usbus3
umass1:  SCSI over Bulk-Only; quirks = 0x0000
umass1:1:1:-1: Attached to scbus1
da4 at umass-sim1 bus 1 target 0 lun 0
da4: < COBY MP3 Player \\000\\000\\000?> Removable Direct Access SCSI-0 device 
da4: 40.000MB/s transfers
da4: 1958MB (4011008 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T 249C)
GEOM: da4: partition 1 does not start on a track boundary.
GEOM: da4: partition 1 does not end on a track boundary.
I've tried simply mounting it with:

Code:
$ sudo mount_msdosfs /dev/da4 /mnt
And as expected I get an error.

However fdisk does recognize the disk. Here's the output of fdisk /dev/da4 as root:

Code:
******* Working on device /dev/da4 *******
parameters extracted from in-core disklabel are:
cylinders=249 heads=255 sectors/track=63 (16065 blks/cyl)

parameters to be used for BIOS calculations are:
cylinders=249 heads=255 sectors/track=63 (16065 blks/cyl)

Media sector size is 512
Warning: BIOS sector numbering starts with sector 1
Information from DOS bootblock is:
The data for partition 1 is:
sysid 11 (0x0b),(DOS or Windows 95 with 32 bit FAT)
    start 32, size 4010976 (1958 Meg), flag 80 (active)
	beg: cyl 0/ head 1/ sector 1;
	end: cyl 494/ head 7/ sector 32
The data for partition 2 is:
<UNUSED>
The data for partition 3 is:
<UNUSED>
The data for partition 4 is:
<UNUSED>
Any ideas on how to mount this? Thanks in advance.

Shoot guys it just hit me how to fix it.

Code:
$ sudo mount_msdosfs /dev/da4[color="Red"]s1[/color] /mnt
I should have read the fdisk output more closely. Thanks guys for looking.

Hey, I've got that same one. It works well for me, though it would be nice if it played ogg files.
