    Macports identified this as an issue with the overly verbose device names exceeding the buffer size - issue, with patch, at http://trac.macports.org/ticket/27819

    The buffer needs to be even larger than 256 bytes- Modern USB SuperDrives give a path >400 chars, so I set it to 1024 to be safe.
