mounting USB mp3 player.


I want to mount an USB mp3 player.
/var/log/messages says this:
Sep 20 20:10:46 Glove kernel: usb 2-2: new full speed USB device using address 3
Sep 20 20:10:46 Glove kernel: scsi3 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices

Sep 20 20:10:46 Glove kernel: Attached scsi generic sg1 at scsi3, channel 0, id 0, lun 0, type 0

thogh, there is no /dev/sdb1 nor any /dev/sg1..
Do i have to make one, or what is wrong?

I heard that mounting usb players under linux is broken in the 2.6.8.1 kernel. Is this so?

My Muro MR-100 mounts great in SuSE. As long as it supports the USB Mass Storage Device spec, it should mount fine. Since you know from above that it is a sdb, try mounting /dev/sdb and if that fails try each sdb from 1-9. Mine is simply /dev/sdb as it is the only thing plugged into the second USB hub I have running.

ok, i got it working a long time ago, just wanted to write how i did it. I restarted /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug then it made a device in /dev by itself.
