plug in and view content of flash mp3 player


Hi.

When i plug in a usb flash drive it's mounting is done through /dev/sda1...
i tried to plug in a usb flash mp3 player but was unable to mount it in the same manner, which seemed odd 'cause it cause as far as i know it works the same.
can you please tell me what is the device i should mount to view the player's content and how do i check which device represents which hardware?

Thank you.

It would be nice if you could post what kind of player it is (brand, model, etc.)

I don't think it's relevant, cause usb flash drives use /dev/sda1 no matter what's the model...
but anyways:
iRiver IFP-795 512MB Flash Mp3 Player

thanks.

Same issue

I have an iRiver ifp-795 512 MB player and it does not show up correctly and I do not know how to find the device name. I am running Slack 10, if I need to post output of anything please let me know. Thanks.

either or both of you with the problem:

Could you post the output of the 'lsusb' command?

Sorry for the late reply; school has been rather busy lately, and I'm having a hard time keeping up.

Solved

I think that I found the problem. I looked up the man page for mount and there were some interesting options that I could have applied, but it seemed that theo only one that I needed was user,rw.
