    1st gen iPod shuffle will not mount


    When I plug the suffle in, dmesg looks good and puts it at sdb : sdb1, but /dev/sdb1 is never created.

    Other thumb drives mount fine at /dev/sdb1 and the shuffle mounts fine on my other debian box at /dev/sdb1. I just installed on this system and it's a pretty sparse install so I'm wondering if I'm missing some firmware.

    dmesg output:

    Try with sdb instead pf sdb1, some devices do not have partition tables.

    It does have a partition though, fdisk /dev/sdb shows one vfat partition at sdb1.

    Have you tried to create mount point ( /media/sdb1 ) and mount it manually?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
