Question more on the portable mp3 player problem


I am using the suse 8.2 like nis said. I own a yepp mp3 player, i believe a 120 mb. And if you could help with how to transfer, or if you could tell me how to mount it and try that, please do. Thanks

There is a program out there that can transfer files from your computer to your Yepp player. Here it is. I didn't look around too much but I think it should work with your mp3 player. You'll probably need to compile it from source so here's how you do that.
1. Make a directory called sulu in your home directory and move the file you downloaded from the site above into it.
2. In a console, type 'tar xfzp filename.tzg' where filename is the name of the downloaded file. This extracts the contents of that file into the current directory, similarly to a zip file in Windows.
3. Type 'make' and wait until every thing is done scrolling and you're back at the command prompt. You now should have an executable called sulu in that directory.

The site says you'll need to run sulu as root or check note3 in the note directory, which will be one of the files you extracted earlier. Hopefully this will work for you and you can use your mp3 player.

don't know about that specific model, but most can be mounted by
Code:
modprobe usb-storage
mount /dev/sda1 /where-you-want-it

please don't open a new thread to continue a discussion unless you change the topic: it makes it harder to follow for you, helpers and people that searches help through a search engine.

mounted, then what

My console tells me that it is mounted:
x1-6-00-50-bf-39-8a-92:~ # mount usbdevfs
mount: usbdevfs already mounted or /proc/bus/usb busy
mount: according to mtab, usbdevfs is already mounted on /proc/bus/usb

But I can't transfer anything over. please help

usbfs only browses your usb bus and provides info to actual drivers/modules.
You can use it to check if your mp3 player is properly seen (i suppose it is), but can't get into it.
usb-storage module mimics a scsi device connected to usb, that's why i suggested those two lines. Didn't they work? What error msg did you get?
