For some reason I can't mount my Toshiba Gigabeat and use it's HDD. I have rockbox on it and would like to copy some music onto it.

Some information:

dmesg:

Anyone know why I can't mount it? I can't even see it anywhere in nautilus to begin. And I can't use the terminal because it doesn't get assigned a name like sdg* or something.

Is this the external drive?:

Try booting your Ubuntu system and after you're logged in and any scripts are done, plug in the usb connector for your Gigabeat.

Does the "device notifier" pop up? If so, click on it and maybe you'll be able to use it.

I have the same problem. My Rockbox'd Gigabeat F40 isn't recognized by Ubuntu, although the player knows it's been USB connected. I have to switch to Vista to put new songs on. Very upsetting, obviously :)
