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?
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.
