I need to have backup of huge files till now I have problems with
cdrtools to have backup on DVD. Please can any body advice using USB
hardrives (PnP) to have backup on them OR they are not supported by
Solaris 10 11 /06 x86 .
Thanks in advance for your co-operation .

If the device doesn't show up automatically, I've found the following
to work:

Plug the device in, and run:

# rmformat

You will see a path returned for the USB device, ie:

then simply mount the location:

# mount -F pcfs /dev/dsk/c8t0d0s2:c /mnt
