Work has set us all up with Crackberries - Curves, to be specific.  In
particular, they have cameras.

A machine at work hung, and I took some screenshots with mine.  But now
I seem unable to get them off the stupid thing.  I've tried NetBSD 3.1,
I've tried FreeBSD 6.2, I've even tried Linux; everything sees it as a
SCSI device with no media present.  The NetBSD version is

umass0 at uhub0 port 1 configuration 1 interface 0
umass0: Research In Motion RIM Mass Storage Device, rev 1.10/1.06, addr 2
umass0: using SCSI over Bulk-Only
scsibus1 at umass0: 2 targets, 1 lun per target
sd1 at scsibus1 target 0 lun 0: <RIM, BlackBerry SD, 0001> disk removable
sd1: drive offline

and I've been unable to get anything more out of it until I unplug it,
at which point I see

umass0: at uhub0 port 1 (addr 2) disconnected
sd1 detached
scsibus1 detached
umass0 detached

which I assume is a perfectly normal detach sequence.

Am I doing something wrong, or is this just hopeless?  (In the
meantime, I'll ten-finger copy the data off...and send a rant to the
person who chose the bloody things.)
