Question Mounting iRiver T30


I'm trying to mount my iRiver T30 so I can actually use it.
I'm running Debian Etch, and so far I've tried as su:

# mkdir /media/iriver
# mount -t vfat /dev/sda /media/iriver

what it seems to do is mirror my hardrive at the location /media/iriver

Any suggestions?

When I do get this working properly, what would be a good program to move mp3's on to my T30?

Thanks in advance,
Barnes

Do you have an SATA hard drive? Do you know for sure that the kernel is referring to your device as /dev/sda? See what dmesg says. Also, you need to mount partitions, e.g. /dev/sda1 and not /dev/sda. Edit, as for moving stuff to your device, well there's mv or cp!

I do have a SATA hard drive. I did dmesg, but I'm not sure what I'm looking for?

You should see lines relating to your device after plugging it in. Post the last ~ 10-15 lines of the output here.

There is lots more output. I'd venture to say at least 100 lines. But those are the last few lines. It's a bit much to post here I think.

Post your "fdisk -l" (lowercase L, not a 1).

try this as root, type

tail -f /var/log/messages

next, plug in your player

when you plug in the device, the kernel will append new lines pertaining to your device. Post the output ( new lines ) you get.

PS. After searching around with google. It seems this device does not use the Mass Storage protocol, like the earlier iriver models. The protocol your model uses is called MTP
which is use by windows media player.

Most of the searches recommend updating the firmware. Sometimes this helps. But be careful, updating a firmware can also be risky. If done incorrectly, the device could be inoperable.

Amarok, Banshee, Rhythmbox

Banshee is not very good, though..
