Smile Media Not Found


Hi I'm very new to Linux and am trying to install TV Guide/Timer to a new Hard Drive for my Pioneer Recorder.According to online instructions i'm supposed to input "mount /media/hda1 -o remount,rw" when i do so i get "media not found message"..BTW I am using Knoppix V 7 ,these instructions were for V 3.6 ,if that has any bearing.....any help would be greatly appreciated.thanks

Post a link to the instructions. Are you using knoppix live or installed?
Quote:
to a new Hard Drive
What device node is that new hard drive? Is it 1st partion on /dev/sda?
mount /media/hda1, that may need to be /media/sda1
You'll need to give more info.

Hi thank you very much for replying.As I said I'm very new to Knoppix/Linux and was trying to follow some instructions on upgrading a Pioneer DVD/HDD Recorder using Linux to install TV Guide Timer onto the new HDD.After checking things after I see that Knoppix has the Windows HDD as sda1 not hda1 as in the instructions,and the new HDD that i'm trying to install the ISO file to as sdb5 not hdb.The new HDD has been formatted to FAT32 ,but has had the partition removed.I will try again using sda1 instead of hda1.Thanks again for your help.If you don't mind I'll retype the instructions i'm using,purpose being to copy a ISO file from Windows Drive to new HDD on a special partition created by Linux

su root

mount /media/hda1 -o remount,rw

ddif=media/hda1/Firmware/pioneer4.iso of=dev/hdb seek=4 bs=512

I'm assuming i need to change hda1 to sda1 and hdb to sdb5


Thanks

Code:
dd if=/path/to/file.iso
Is the path to where pioneer4.iso is.
You can find it with
Code:
 sudo find / -name pioneer4.iso
Code:
dd of=/dev/sda5
Is where the .iso will be written to. The partition will have to exist. And if you get the wrong one you will overwrite whatever is on it. (like operating system)

sorry i can't give the exact path of pioneer4.iso because its on my other computer at home.but it is in a folder i created in windows xp titled Firmware,that's what the instructions tell us to do.download the iso and extract it into a folder created in XP titled Firmware.

Thanks.If I can get the iso onto my new HDD in the right position then i owe you some beers!
