    Mount Harddrive Mp3 Player without reboot


    Last week I spent about 40 minutes trying to track down a way to mount my mp3 player to my Mandriva 10.1 system (this was my first attempt). There were lots of solutions online but for all of them there was at least 1 step that failed for me (or what I was seeing didn't correspond to the instructions) and so it didn't work. Then, for another reason, I had to reboot my machine while the mp3 player was still hooked up... and presto... there it was on my desktop with a cute little icon.

    SOO, if Mandrake somehow has some script or something that knows how to properly mount this device can I not find that and run it without having to reboot the machine. Does anyone know how I can do this?

    TIA

    you should just be able to
    Code:
    cd /mnt
    su
    mkdir mp3
    just the first time
    then
    Code:
    mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/mp3
    and the mp3 player should be at /mnt/mp3
