I've just acquired a Philips Mp3 Player:
usb 5-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 8
usb-storage: device found at 8
scsi 5:0:0:0: Direct-Access Philips GoGear SA21xx 1100 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0 CCS
sd 5:0:0:0: [sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk
I can mount it and copy files from it. But the problem is that my fdisk doesn't agree with its partitioning:
Disk /dev/sdb: 1011 MB, 1011220480 bytes
249 heads, 32 sectors/track, 247 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 7968 * 512 = 4079616 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xc3072e18
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sdb1 * 1 248 987504 b W95 FAT32
Partition 1 has different physical/logical endings:
phys=(249, 248, 32) logical=(247, 216, 32)
This make me worry about copying files onto it.
Have anyone experience such non-standard USB key partitioning before?
Is it OK to fix it on my Linux side and still safe for use by itself and under Windows?
