    It kinda looks like you are running 1.9.
I am indeed running 1.9.
    For 1.9 you are going to have to regenerate all your devices in
    cd /dev
    rm ad*
    ./MAKEDEV ad0
    ./MAKEDEV ad1
    ./MAKEDEV ad2
I have done the above, presumably a reboot was needed so I have done that
also, however i'm still getting the same messages.
Is there anything else I can try, or am I being completely stupid?

Thanks for the prompt response!

*Which* FreeBSD were you coming from?

And had you previously set up the problematic disk with that (or other) OS?
