Default Mounting External USB Hard Drives

I installed PCBSD-1.5. I have a WD 250GB USB External Hardrive. I plugged it and it didnot work. I had DesktopBSD 1.6 installed at my laptop. Desktopbsd-tools utility mounts external hard drives. I installed desktopbsd-tools via pors and built it from source.

I plugged it in USB port and got a fail message in dmesg output:
umass0: Western Digital External HDD, rev 2.00/1.08, addr 2
xptioctl: pass driver is not in the kernel
xptioctl: put "device pass0" in your kernel config file
And also a KDE dilog box popped up. USB external hard drive mounted. dmesg out put is as follows:
da1 at umass-sim0 bus 0 target 0 lun 0
da1: <WD 3200JB External 0108> Fixed Direct Access SCSI-0 device
da1: 40.000MB/s transfers
da1: 305245MB (625142448 512 byte sectors: 255H 63S/T 38913C)

Default Re: Mounting External USB Hard Drives
Have you tried to mount the external drive manually?
