    Mounting a media device?

    Basically, I need my Creative Zen 30GB MP3 player to be detected by Ubuntu so I can backup stuff. It gets detected as being plugged in but I can't mount it or anything?

    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ lsusb

    What have you tried mounting, and what device files is/are your harddrive(s)? If it mounts like a 'normal' USB device, it usually occupies the first available /dev/sd*. For example, on my machine, I have /dev/sda for my first harddrive and /dev/sdb for my second. So when I want to mount my flash drive, I mount /dev/sdc1.
