ditto


Just a warning(and maybe a question) I was able to mount and unmount this Lyra Thomson RD1070_20 under linux previously ( I think I used "mount /dev/sda /mnt/lyra" ) but I (perhaps unwisely) used the firmware upgrade available at RCA. now it seems I cannot even mount the unit under linux. It shows up under /proc/bus/devices but will not let itself be mounted. As an aside after upgrading the firmware one must reformat it as FAT (not FAT32 which winXP automagically does for you) or the unit will not play files...Oh yeah, thanks RCA for useful help on this situation! If I had been paying attention I never would have gotten a player that plays their giMPY format...truly a brain-damaged format if ever their was one. Avoid proprietary formats!!

I was able to read files from my Lyra before I did the firmware.

Now linux displays some error that sais that the card is corrupted

I will format my card under windows to see if it works again

Original firmware?

Let me know how it goes! Should we try and bug RCA for the original firmware(what are the chances they will give it out?)

This is the message I receive when I mount my Lyra

However Konqueror and my Shell seem to "hang up" when I try to either read the files, or copy files from the device to any other place in my HD

I will try recompiling my kernel with direct SCSI support, hope that fixes it

I already formatted my Lyra with Windows XP (FAT format), and it works really good with Windows (plays music ok too)

This is happening since I upgraded the firmware of the device

Hello All....

I have been searching for some time to get resolution on this problem. I have a Lyra 1080 - the system says that it is device sda. Soo.... I made a directory /media/lyra - then I mount /dev/sda -tvfat /media/lyra and I got back a message "can't read superblock" - Anyone got anything on this?

Thanks,
Bruce

mount /dev/sda1 /media/lyra

that will do

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /media/lyra

That is the command you're trying to put
