Question Problem mounting USB flash memory


I recently purchased a cheap MP3 player that is also useable as a USB flash drive (256mb). Works great in Windows. It is "driverless" and requires no software to operate, just drag and drop. It is just a Walmart brand (ilo) but it is good enough for me.

Anyway, I thought that because it required no driver or software in Windows it would work in Linux. Maybe that was wrong.

This is what dmesg has to say about it:

subfs: unsuccessful attempt to mount media (256)
Initializing USB Mass Storage driver...
usbcore: registered new driver usb-storage
USB Mass Storage support registered.
usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using address 10
usb 1-5: control timeout on ep0out
usb 1-5: control timeout on ep0out
usb 1-5: device not accepting address 10, error -110
usb 1-5: new high speed USB device using address 11
usb 1-5: control timeout on ep0out
usb 1-5: control timeout on ep0out
usb 1-5: device not accepting address 11, error -110

and the output of dmesg ends there.

I am a Linux newbe and have no idea what to do about that. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I want to stop using Windows and move just to Linux by the end of this year but I have a lot to learn.

Anyone? No one has any idea what this could be? Or does everyone already know except me, and this question was too dumb to post?

ILO mp3 player

I'm using mepis w/2.6.10 kernel and I got the ILO to work.

However, I'm not proficient @ Linux either.

Mine mounts as a scsi device (sda1), so I think you have to have scsi emulation enabled (someone correct me if I'm wrong) which means you may have to recompile your kernel for that feature.

So it DOES work w/Linux. The ILO we have is actually for my son, and it went out about 6 weeks after we got it. Not sure if he mistreated it or not. Just swapped it out for another one - its really a great value - I've also used it as a usb drive to transfer some files from windows to linux. It worked great.

Sorry I don't have experience w/other distributions to help you out.
