mounting mp3 player
« on: April 16, 2020, 05:04:26 pm »
I'm using Rhythmbox and my (handmedown) ipod mounted fine, but then died, so I got a generic mp3 player, but this one isn't mounting.  I found a mount program in the Linux discovery thing, but that doesn't seem to do anything.  What can I do? Sidenote-I'm not supertechie and new to Linux and am using any responses need to assume zero skills and really dumb it down for me :)

Hi Shun.

First off:  we need a bit more information so please do the following:
1. start a terminal session by either:
a) finding "Terminal" in the Applications menu OR
b) doing Ctrl+Alt+T i.e. whilst holding down the Ctrl and Alt keys, click the "T" key once and briefly.

2. in the black window that appears (the Terminal) enter the command
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fx
(and press "Enter", of course)
3. copy the resulting text by highlighting it in the usual way then clicking Ctrl+Shift+C.
4. paste that text into your next post using Ctrl+V. (Confusing, isn't it?)
5. enter the command
Code: [Select]
(and Enter)
6. copy the output as before and paste that also into your next post. 

All this will help to diagnose your problem.
