I can't mount mp3-player with "mount"


Hello guys!
I connect my MP3-player to USB-port, /dev/sdb appears, but no /dev/sdb1, so I can't mount it (no automount in the system). Filesystem of the player seems to be FAT32. "dosfstools" and "mtools" are installed. Why is there no sdb1?

I would look at dmesg and /var/log/messages just after the player is connected. This will show what the kernel does. It may show details about why it doesn't detect a file system.

I have had audio players that show as simply as /dev/sdd and mounted them successfully. I blogged the story here.

Did you create a mountpoint and have you tried putting the device in your fstab?

Of course I created a mountpoint, but I can't mount it since there's no partiton on sdb. And I don't know how can fstab help... Nothing to mount.

I'll read the article now.
