USB MP3 Problem
How are you trying to mount it? Which fs is it using?

Don't PM me with questions, instead post in the forums
It is set as a FAT16 fs, connected to USB at start-up and recognised as a removable dev - dev/sda1. When I try to mount it (as root) I get this:
Mount dev/sda1 is not a valid block device.
Please check that the disk is entered correctly.
It functions perfectly well under Windows, but I don't really want to have to install Windows on my machine just for this, since I've made the transition seamlessly apart from this one thing!!
Got mine to work even without editing my fstab.
su to root and then type:
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/memory.
wherein /mnt/memory is my dir for mounting, you can make your folder if you like e.g. mkdir /usbstick. hope this helps. cheers.
The problem seems to be that the kernel sees it as a SCSI drive.

su - root
mkdir -p /mnt/memory
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /mnt/memory
Your files should now be in /mnt/memory. Before you pull it out, run this command:
Then you can remove it. Otherwise, it would probably mess some stuff up on your drive.
I've been away for a while, but just let me clarify things.
I've gone to Mandrake as my distro, and I no longer have any problem with devices.
Thanx again for all help!!!
