can't find drivers for my mp3 player EV-64AMX


its one of those million mp3 players out there. the model's called EV-64AMX, made by "Now Evolution"

originally i was using it in my winxp but now i'm using SuSE, i have no idea how to effectively transfer mp3s to it.

it uses this usb cable, and as i know, its got its own drivers from the company i have to install to winxp first to be able to use it.

any help? please? i totally have no technical knowledge with peripheral devices

this would appear to be a totally generic usb memory device, there will be no specific drivers for it. when you plug the device in, run "dmesg" and see what the last few lines are. if the right modules are already loaded. normally the device would be connected to /dev/sda1, so if you've not got that far, try "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb" assuming those details are correct. if there is no /dev/ entry created, run "lsmod" and see what modules are loaded. i'm never quite sure which ones are needed, but i think you want usb-storage and sd to be there.

i'm not at my own computer right now.. i'm familiar with the mounting commands and i remember the last time i tried it didn't come up. but thanks, i'll try that dmesg and lsmod thing. so if i don't have the right modules, where would i get them?

thinking about it, what if it turned out to be not-totally-generic-usb-memory-device? is there like a site where people put their own implementation of non-generic usb device drivers? or anything close to that?
