Phillips GoGear (HDD1630/17) detects, doesn't mount


I am running Ubuntu 7.10, attempting to retrieve/add music to my GoGear Mp3 player. A bit of searching produced a few programs that are supposed to help, but I have zero experience with Linux, and haven't been able to get them to work. I know Linux is detecting it as a music device since it opens the music player when I connect it, but as far as I can tell, it never mounts so that I can read/write off it.

Any info you need from me, you'll likely need to walk me through, as well as any help. This Linux deal is a bit more complicated than I bargained for, but still loads better than Windows.

Any help is appreciated!

You can check whether it is mounted or not with the mount command:

mount

That will list all of the devices that are currently mounted. Issue the mount command before and after you plug in the GoGear Mp3 player to see what Ubuntu is doing with the device.

Linux keeps some information about mountable devices in a file called /etc/fstab. Please post the contents of /etc/fstab so we can check to see what Ubuntu intends to do with your Mp3 player when you connect it.
