mounting mp3 player

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 Kubuntu…so any responses need to assume zero skills and really dumb it down for me :slight_smile:

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

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


(and Enter)
6. copy the output as before and paste that also into your next post.

All this will help to diagnose your problem.
