I’ve also encountered some issues with certain brands of flash drives.  Sometimes the mount try will work for me.  Usually mounting manually will get around it for me.  Some instructions you can try are here.  This almost always works for me when I can mount through the GUI.  You will need to change the filesystem type to whatever filesystem type you are trying to mount.  


Also before you plugin your drive open a terminal as root and run tail -f /var/log/messages.  That should show you if FreeBSD even see’s the drive and if there if there are any errors if for some reason you still can’t even manually mount it.
