Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have a JungSoft Muzio mp3 player, in SuSE 8.1 it was recognised and could be read from/written to; but after umount the device would still display the "usb connecting" message* , and after physical removal or power off it would report a corrupt file system (though it still worked fine, but would whinge about the corrupt fs whenever turned on).
* The mp3 player displays two messages "usb connecting" and "transfer in progress", the "usb connecting" message is always displayed when there's no transfer.
I now have a copy of SuSE 9.1 pro, and the problem has been reduced... now after umount it still displays "usb connecting" but if unplugged it won't report a corrupt fs. However when the device is inserted again it's not recognised...
As the main machine (holding all the music) in the house is on 24/7, i'd rather not have to reboot each time i want to unplug the mp3.
On a windows system after clicking some disconnect icon near the clock the device shuts down and starts up as a player, powering itself from usb - it can then be safely disconnected. No drivers were required for the afore mentioned OS, it operates as a generic mass storage device
Does anyone know if a specific usb device can be disabled/ejected?
i have the hotplug and autofs daemon running, could these cause this kind of problem?
i've tried using hotplugctl, but i can't find any documentation (suse manuals or web) to help identify what the hwid hardware ID is. Any ideas?
