Mnt Devices


I have a new MP3 player.It plugs into your USB ports and you just drag and drop your Mp3 files into it.In windows it automaticly finds it.I plugged it in running Linux and I could not find it.I checked in /dev and in /mnt.It wasnt in /dev/usb and the only things that were in my /mnt folder were Cdrom,Cdrom1 and Floppy.I also did lsmod and I saw Usb-Storage in the list.I am sure that it is compatible with Linux somehow I just need you guys help.

Thanks.

/mnt entries are just directories, there is nothign autoamtic about the contents of it, it's just a convention. /mnt/mp3player will not exist until you run "mkdir /mnt/mp3player" it is probably connected as a scsi blcok device. plug the thing in, and after a few seconds, run "dmesg" this may well tell you where the device has been attached to, if anywhere. Most likey is /dev/sda1

like i said, use the "dmesg" output. i only said it is likely to be /dev/sda1. but this is a DEVICE entry, you can not access it in a browser, you need to mount it and then the mounted location will behave likel a normal directory.

You will probably need to do something like (as root)

cd /mnt
mkdir mp3player
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/mp3player

but that's only if dmesg tells you that the device is plugged to /dev/sda1; else, you'll have to type

mount 'wherever' /mnt/mp3player

where 'wherever' is the place of the dmesg output.
