USB drive - cannot mount

I have a 10GB Archos MP3 player that I am trying to use as a USB drive. When I plug it in, "kernel: hub.c: new USB device 00:02.0-2, assigned address 8" is printed to /var/log/messages so I know it sees it. However, fdisk -l just pauses for about two minutes and comes up with only my hda partitions. I tried mounting it (mount -t auto /dev/sda1 /mnt/mp3) and it says: /dev/sda1: Input/output error. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Do you have usb mass storage and generic scsi support in your kernel or as loaded modules? Also check the output from "dmesg" when the drive is plugged in.

The site has some information about drivers. See also for related projects.

I haven't used any of this - just sounded like an interesting gadget.
