This is a way of reading image data from E5700 into FreeBSD box, I've tried.
Since E5700 uses CompatFlash (or MicroDrive) as a storage medium, we have 2 ways to read pictures into our laptop FreeBSD box:
I tried the USB connection.
I attempted to connect E5700 up to my note PC by the bundled USB cable. The PC is Panasonic's CF-B5FR running FreeBSD 4.7-STABLE as of 2002/11/21.
Then it probed as the following.
At this time, E5700 had 256MB CompactFlash card.
Then I mounted da0s1 on /mnt as the msdos filesystem.

There was no problem on reading files. xv(1) and jhead(1) were useful to view images and their exif information.
mtools(1) may also work.
