    It's really weird, because I've used a regular flash drive before- but only the once-, and it worked just fine.

    That didn't work, by the way.

    Code:
    ]# mount -o rw /dev/sda1 /mnt/mp3
    mount: /dev/sda1 is not a valid block device

    yeah, that is happening because the device keeps disconnecting itself and hence linux is unable to assign a block device name for the mp3 player i.e. /dev/sda1 .

    if it worked properly, the dmesg output would show something like:
    scsi device attached at /dev/sdb1 <-- when I plug in my mp3 player into my computer...

    You said that Windows doesn't recognize the mp3 player... I'd suggest you try the mp3 player in a different computer running windows and see if it detect it. If it doesn't return the mp3 player for warranty repairs/replacement.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    ... I don't have another computer to test it in. I suppose I'll just take it back, to be safe. Thank you so much for all of your help.
