    USB MP3 flash player


    I have an USB MP3 flash player, but then, in one day, I wanted to change fs, and then something gone wrong, and now I can't mount the flash.
    Can anybody help me?

    What errors do you get when you try to mount the flash drive?

    Yes I have read this, but it didn't help me.

    When I mount I write: mount /dev/sda

    mount: special device /dev/sda does not exist

    And I can't find the device with lsusb.
    So what can I do?

    erm, you should be mounting the partition (not the drive) with
    Code:
    mount /dev/hda1
    If you are still having problems, try it with hdb1 hdc1 and even hdd1 ?
