impossible to transfer file from laptop to MP3 player


Hi,
when I want to transfer my MP3 files to my MP3 player, I click the right button of the mouse and the option "paste" does not appear .

Any idea?

Where you are trying to paste the file is 'read-only'

Correct, the file is "read only" but how can I change the "properties" and be able to "write "?

It is not the file but the directory ceyx was talking about.

How are you locating the mp3 file ?

If you are browsing and trying to save from it, often web sites do not want you to download and save the files and will sometimes write javascript to disable right-click functions.

You might have better luck at the shell prompt using 'wget URL.mp3' to fetch from the web site into the current directory.

More specific advise could be given if we knew what you are trying to do in greater detail. Perhaps you might even tell what URL.

If it is attempting to copy a CD that requires specialised software. http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/linux-r...g-audio-files/ Google 'rip CD linux' to find more pointers.

Just to summarize: You want to copy MP3 files to your MP3 player, which is, I assume, formatted with FAT32 (most MP3 players are)? If not, please correct me.
Usually when the Paste entry in the menu is greyed out you have not the permissions to write at that directory. For FAT32 disks this usually means that you have not specified an UID/GID when mounting the disk, so that only root has privileges to write to it.

@ TOBISGD:

correct: how can I mount my player in order to be able to copy-paste the files?

Thanx

Assuming that your UID and GID are both 1000 (they are on many Linux distributions for the first user) try it with
Code:
mount -t vfat -o uid=1000,gid=1000 /dev/sdX /your-mount-point
where you have to replace /dev/sdX with the actual device and /your-mount-point with the directory where you want to mount the device.

[root@localhost ~]# mount -t vfat -o uid=1000,gid=1000 /dev/sdX /ho
mount: le périphérique spécial /dev/sdX n'existe pas
[root@localhost ~]#

I don't know how to find "/dev/sdX"

As I stated, you have to replace /dev/sdX with the actual device. Launch as root the command
Code:
fdisk -l
It will show all your storage devices, just choose the one that is your MP3 player. This is how it looks on my laptop when I attach my MP3 player to it:
Code:
root ~ ☺ # fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 40.0 GB, 40020664320 bytes
32 heads, 32 sectors/track, 76333 cylinders, total 78165360 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x48dde035

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sda1              32     8000511     4000240   82  Linux swap
/dev/sda2   *     8000512    78165359    35082424   83  Linux

Disk /dev/sdb: 4043 MB, 4043309056 bytes
8 heads, 32 sectors/track, 30848 cylinders, total 7897088 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x221e5780

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1   *          32     7897087     3948528    b  W95 FAT32
As you can see I have one internal disk (40GB,/dev/sda) with two partitions and an external device (4GB, /dev/sdb) which contains one partition /dev/sdb1. This is the name you have to use for the mount-command.

Please watch your language.
Nobody is corrupting your OS, if someone gives you a command you have to use it in the exactly the same way as is written down, in this case you have caused the error by adding a space after the comma in -o uid=1000,gid=1000.
Also, mounting to /home is not a good idea, it will hide your users' home-directories, so that any files in it are inaccessible.
