Part of dmesg:

umass0 at uhub4 port 2 configuration 1 interface 8
umass0: Sony Ericsson Sony Ericsson K750, rev 2.00/0.00, addr 5
umass0: using ATAPI over Bulk-Only
atapibus1 at umass0: 2 targets
sd0 at atapibus1 drive 0: <Sony Eri, Memory Stick, 0000> disk removable
sd0: drive offline
sd0: fabricating a geometry
