That entirely depends on how you copy the files. If you, say, mount the mp3 player and use cp, there should be no history (except the command
history in ~/.bash_history).
It really depends--if you describe the process you use to copy the data, we might know the application and know and/or figure out the answer.
You can do yourself a big favor--saving yourself the time spent reading `dud' replies like mine--by reading `Smart Questions' by ESR. Google is your friend.
By the way, some thing that convinces me that I'm using a debian system:
- I got the installer from www.debian.org (how did you install your distro?)
- On my VTs (Ctrl-Alt-F1 through F6), it says `Debian GNU/Linux' (one can change that in /etc/issue)--what does your issue say?
- The file /etc/debian_version exists--does it exist on your machine?
