Trying to mount USB MP3 storage key (128Mb)


I have tried successfully to mount several drives....but I'm trying to mount a USB 1.1 Mp3 player I have. It's a RCA Lyra with 128Mb onboard.

I made a mount point at /mnt/usbkey.

I'm simply trying to mount it as:

mount /dev/ttyUSB1 /mnt/usbkey -t vfat -r

The problem is that I don't know which one in /dev/usb/.... should be used... there are loads , ie ttyUSB0, dausbb1 etc...

I know the 128Mb is FAT 16 on the player... so I gave it vfat.

It must be the /dev/xxx part that is throwing it off ?

Anyone with any ideas? Or maybe some other way to "proc" it?
I tried rebooting to see if it would spot it but nope. Also the players shows me "connected" when it is plugged in (good).

*** Oops. I better say I have RH8 kernel 2.4.18-14.

If your device is considered a USB mass storage device it will be /dev/sda1. You can check the RH hardware GUI to confirm. If you still can't mount check the output of /sbin/lsmod to see if all of the USB modules are being loaded.
usbcore
usb-uhci
scsi_mod

Oh yes...this looks good...

in the hardware browser I can see:

/dev/sda...

sda1 1 1022 122 FAT

That 122 is referring to the 128Mb internal memory. Hope it mounts... oh much goodness!

michaelk,

The browser also told me the name of player too! Cool!

All named modules are loaded.

So I did a mount:

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbkey -t usbfs -rw

Ok. so I "cd /mnt/usbkey"...
ls and I get:
001 (dir) 002 (dir) devices drivers

hmmm?

cd 001
001 and 003 again (cat these and it tries to xterm)

If I cat the "devices" file above I get this in the output:

Wahey!

Have it!

Should be:
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbkey -t vfat -rw

instead of mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbkey -t usbfs -rw.


Ok, My thompson usb 128Mb Lyca player is set up as follows:

1. mkdir /mnt/usbkey
2. mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usbkey -t vfat -rw

cool! Thanks michaelk! Great Help! Another conquest!

Btw, this player encodes .mp3 as .mpy. Basically a header that scrambles the .mp3 just in case I might d/l onto someone's machine later. Sheeesh! But that's Musicmatch/Lyca for you.
