Problem with USB devices

Hi,

I've just recently installed Freebsd 12 release. Everything seems to be working, mostly. I am however having problems with the system recognising USB3 devices, or more specifically flash drives, USB hard drives and DVD drives. When Plugged in nothing happens, or sometimes the flash drive may be recognised after around 2 minutes, then I can mount it, but that's only 1 in 5 times. USB2 no problems at all.

I've poked around with various settings and permissions etc, but nothing appears to work. Technical details as follows if it helps:-

HP Pavilion 550-182na Desktop, all AMD and Radeon chipsets

for usb stick and an external hdd ext4. I got this to automount
Code:
[userx@FreeBSD64ssd ~]$ cat /etc/rc.conf
...
#devfs_system_ruleset="devfsrules_common"
devfs_system_ruleset="localrules"
autofs_enable="YES"
fuse_load="YES"
...
Code:
[userx@FreeBSD64ssd ~]$ cat /boot/loader.conf
....
kldload fuse

I took from that page and added into that files the few things I figured I needed.

Code:
[userx@FreeBSD64ssd ~]$ cat /etc/auto_master
# $FreeBSD: releng/12.0/usr.sbin/autofs/auto_master 337749 2018-08-14 13:52:08Z trasz $
#
# Automounter master map, see auto_master(5) for details.
#
/net            -hosts          -nobrowse,nosuid,intr
# When using the -media special map, make sure to edit devd.conf(5)
# to move the call to "automount -c" out of the comments section.
/media          -media          -nosuid,noatime,autoro
#/-             -noauto
Code:
[userx@FreeBSD64ssd ~]$ cat /etc/devfs.rules
[localrules=5]
add path 'da*' mode 0660 group operator
Code:
[userx@FreeBSD64ssd ~]$ cat  /usr/local/etc/automount.conf
USERUMOUNT=YES
ATIME=NO
REMOVEDIRS=YES
FM="pcmanfm"
USER=userx
#ENCODING=pl_PL.ISO8859-2
#CODEPAGE=cp852
FM="pcmanfm" so that file manager opens upon inserting into USB Port.

most of this is a search and find then add it. as far as I remember I installed automount and whatever came with it, and fuse* and that is it. I can get to my data partition to share between Linux and freeBSD ext4 r/w as far as ntfs I have not bothered with it because I do not use it for Linux and FreeBSD on this laptop.

it automounts usb sticks, and external USB Ports HDDs. too. ext4 r/w, and all this laptop has is 3.0 USB ports, the only thing I have not gotten to work is my SD Card slot. but I'm not sweating that. and this is on a HP Elitebook 840 g2 btw
though it it should not matter, just try adding what you do not have that I do, and hopefully you'll have automount 3.0 USB Ports.

they mount in /media

Thanks for the advice. We have partial success. It is now automounting. However, its taking a whole minute for the OS to assign a device name to the flash drive, then then automounting. Then a further minute before the content of the directory is visible. Most strange. USB2 ports, no such problem, its instant.

I shall crack on to find a solution. I'm sure its a chipset problem. Another PC of mine, Intel based, everything works as it should.

Thanks anyway.

yeah, on mine. the attached drives, it sees all of them some of the times, and some of them all of the time. I do not plug in much, so I do not have a real idea on how that preforms. I have not yet gotten it to see SD Cards.

My option is they have two many methods of how it "automounts" a drive. They should put them all into one program and name it automount.

when booting it sees the partitions. I do think I remember reading somewhere how it has this detach mount after x amount of time of no use thing. Nevertheless, it still needs to be consolidated in my option. ie. needs work.

I did not write this OS, I'm still learning its quirks.
cheers!

For HP Pavilion and some USB devices the following quirck can help,
# /usr/sbin/usbconfig ugenx.y add_quirk UQ_MSC_NO_INQUIRY
Check
# dmesg | grep ugen
for the x.y

Try
usb_enable=“YES”
In your rc.conf file
