I have a "Coby Cliphanger" Pocket size photo viewer.
When I plug it in the usb drive shows up, but when I double click it I get the "Cannot mount file" err.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

With the photo viewer plugged in, post the outputs of the commands lsusb and sudo fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sdg doesn't contain a valid partition table

This seems to be the photo viewer.
But there's no partition table. Is it empty, or can you see any files if you use it under e.g. windows?
If it contains no data, then you first have to create a partition on the device, i would suggest to create a fat32 partition, so you can use it under windows and linux.
you can do that with a partition manager, e.g. gparted, but be careful because you will destroy any existing data on the device.
