Help with my mp3 player :(

Hi all,

Thanks for reading my post.

I need to know how I would go about mounting it, what do I type and what do I do?

Im eager to play with my new toy

Nomad MuVo - I got one. Love it - small, sounds good, does what it's supposed to well. After I finally figured out what to do, it works fine on Linux. First, I think every ditro has this by default, but the kernel needs to have USB Mass Storage enabled. Then, you mount it by this command:

$ mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/muvo

'/mnt/muvo' is whatever directory you want to mount to. That took me forever to figure out that it was sda1 that needs to be mounted. Also, at least on my Debian, it doesn't manage to autodetect the filesystem right, hence the '-t vfat'. Anyway, that should work.
