    [SOLVED] Need help mounting usb device


    I'm fairly new to Arch and I have an issue with how to mount an mp3 player that works as a usb device.
    I don't know exactly how to configure my system to automount it nor mount it manually.
    When I type in fdisk -l here is my output

    Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders, total 976773168 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: 0x471a47b2

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sda1 * 63 208844 104391 83 Linux
    /dev/sda2 208845 8610839 4200997+ 82 Linux swap / Solaris
    /dev/sda3 8610840 23985044 7687102+ 83 Linux
    /dev/sda4 23985045 976768064 476391510 83 Linux

    Disk /dev/sdb: 8199 MB, 8199823872 bytes
    253 heads, 62 sectors/track, 1020 cylinders, total 16015281 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: 0x6f20736b

    This doesn't look like a partition table
    Probably you selected the wrong device.

    Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
    /dev/sdb1 ? 778135908 1919645538 570754815+ 72 Unknown
    /dev/sdb2 ? 168689522 2104717761 968014120 65 Novell Netware 386
    /dev/sdb3 ? 1869881465 3805909656 968014096 79 Unknown
    /dev/sdb4 ? 2885681152 2885736650 27749+ d Unknown

    Partition table entries are not in disk order

    Any ideas?

    NVM I just solved this, all I had to do was this:
    sudo mkdir /mnt/usbstick
    then
    sudo mount /dev/sdb /mnt/usbstick
    And I navigated to my mnt directory and all my files were di.splayed
