Sandisk m250 mp3 player in Fedora core 6


Hi!

I'm a Fedora n00b with a Sandisk m250 mp3 player.
At first everything worked just fine, I connected the mp3 player and Fedora detected it at once, enabling me to manage files with Nautilus.

Then I reinstalled Fedora because my incredible n00bness made me do incredible things that gave me some incredible problems. But now Fedora refuses to detect the Sandisk player.

Does anybody have any idea what I can do about this?

Thanks in advance!

dmesg gives this output at connect:

I don't know much, but that looks all good to me, still I can't find the player in Nautilus or anything. I'd appreciate any help

do as root

mount /dev/sdb /mnt/***

where u want to mount it ..

then see if it did mount it ,if all okay u can add a new line in /etc/fstab with

/dev/hdb /mnt/usb auto noauto,user 0 0

now u can mount it under normal user ..

hope this helped

My SanDisk Sansa e280 was giving error messages similar to BillyBobRob (above) when I attempted to connect it. What ultimately worked for me was the following at the command line:

sudo modprobe -r ehci_hcd

Hope this helps.

This didn't work for me. I had to disconnect the device and browse to Settings > USB Mode and change the mode to be MSC. Then once I reconnected the e280, it mounted as a flash drive, easily browseable after showing up as a /dev/sdb device using the mass_storage module.
