USB MP3 Player... Need Help!! SuSE 8.1

Ok, I know this has been asked before but I cannot find a real answer to the problem...

I have a generic MP3 player that connects via USB. It takes the smart media cards and has 64megs of internal memory. When I connect it, I get the following in /var/log/messages...

Dec 26 23:15:12 linux kernel: hub.c: USB new device connect on bus1/1, assigned device number 6
Dec 26 23:15:12 linux kernel: usb.c: USB device 6 (vend/prod 0x66f/0x3400) is not claimed by any active driver.

This is SuSE Linux 8.1

Any help is appreicated!!

I've got a Archos 20 Recorder that connects via USB. You need certain modules to support it in your kernel. You're best bet is probably configuring a new kernel with all the usb /usb-mass storage support, and then compiling. After that it's as easy as mount /dev/sda and creating a mount point. I use /mnt/archos, so in order to mount my device, I type the following:

mount /dev/sda /mnt/archos

Let me know if you have any more questions.
