Question Mount mp3 player via usb?


Hi,

I have the rio karma mp3 player and id like to mount it in linux via usb 2.0. Im unsure how to do this however, surely the mp3 player would act as a usb hard drive?

What device would the player be on? Looking at http://www.linux-usb.org/USB-guide/x498.html they seem to suggest /dev/sda, /dev/sda2.......etc etc, but when trying to mount any of these devices i get

Code:
mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device
I have loaded the usb-storage module, however 'cat /proc/scsi/scsi' returns:

Code:
Attached devices: none
Should this be returning a value before i start trying to mount anything? Am i perhaps missing a module? This is my output from dmesg:

Code:
hub.c: new USB device 00:1d.7-3, assigned address 3
usb.c: USB device 3 (vend/prod 0x45a/0x5210) is not claimed by any active driver.
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
usb.c: registered new driver usb-storage
USB Mass Storage support registered.
Any suggestions would be great, thanks.

A quick google on

"rio karma" linux usb

suggests this is not a standard USB mass storage device. So you would need a special driver.

yes bare in mind that some usb storage devices use /dev/sda instead of /dev/sda1

Thanks for the reply, i tried both sda and sda1 but no luck. Does indeed seem like i need a special driver, was hoping it would just work.

Ill keep an eye out for a driver for it,

Cheers everyone.

what type of partion are you using on the mp3 player ? i almost forgot to tell you. i formated the the nomad to fat32 on a windows partions to make sure it is pick up in linux. After salely disconnect it from windows. turn it on and off once. then try my steps to see if works.

I've got the same problem in Fedora Core 2

My USB SCSI emulation isn't working. It worked earlier. Then, I could mount my external MP3 player by using "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/mp3player". Now I get the message "mount: /dev/sda1 is not a correct block device".

When I search dmesg, I just find "SCSI subsystem initialized" but nothing else on SCSI.

Maybe it's due to that I did change the kernel to a 16Kb stack kernel (2.6.8-1.521.stk16) ...

What should I do to get it working again?
