    Mp3 usb player does not mount


    Hi,

    from 2 weeks to now, I can mount my mp3 usb player. The conection is ok, cause I can mount another mp3 player in the same usb and the mp3 player is also ok because I can mount it in my work's computer.

    I've tried to mount it but the system has not the /dev/sda device.

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks a lot !!!

    Can you give us more details than that? What brand of player is it? Does it require some sort of software to access it or can you just load it like a USB harddrive? What are the exact messages you're getting when you run dmesg after plugging it in? What version of Mandriva are you using?

    Hello again,

    the mplayer is very old nowadays. I've been using it as a usb storage without any problems until now and without any special software.

    Here you have some commands:

    #uname -a
    Linux rodogh 2.6.11-6mdk #1 Tue Mar 22 16:04:32 CET 2005 i686 Pentium III (Katmai) unknown GNU/Linux

    #dmesg

    What this appears to say is that your drive is detected and has been assigned to /dev/sda, which is typical for USB drives. You say you can't mount it using something like mount -t vfat /dev/sda /media/usbdisk/?

    It seems to be something in /dev/sda because of the line you've read

    Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi1, channel 0, id 0, lun 0

    But waiting just some seconds it appears another lines telling that something is wrong... (just see my last post)

    scsi: Device offlined - not ready after error recovery: host 2 channel 0 id 0 lun 0
    scsi2 (0:0): rejecting I/O to offline device
    usb 1-1: USB disconnect, address 13


    So if I try to do what you said I get "no device" message (in spanish....)

    mount: el dispositivo especial /dev/sda no existe

    Kind regards !!!

    Hi again,

    just only to say that I restored a O.S's backup and now it runs perfectly. The problem ? I don't know...

    If I do a dmesg this is what it happens:

    scsi2 : SCSI emulation for USB Mass Storage devices
    usb-storage: device found at 9
    usb-storage: waiting for device to settle before scanning

    sda: Write Protect is off
    sda: Mode Sense: 03 00 00 04
    sda: assuming drive cache: write through

    /dev/scsi/host2/bus0/target0/lun0: p1
    Attached scsi removable disk sda at scsi2, channel 0, id 0, lun 0
    usb-storage: device scan complete

    If anyone want to know about my new configuration, just let me know...

    Thanks to you all...

    Well, umm... YEAH! See, just like I said! I mean... umm..

    But seriously, good to see it's working now, but I can't for the life of me figure out what might have gone wrong in the first place. Perhaps you updated a software package that conflicted with something else? I'm really shooting in the dark here, but good to hear it's working now.
