View Full Version : [ubuntu] MP3 Won't Detect

August 31st, 2008, 06:29 AM
Hi, so I finally went out and bought a cable to connect my Mp3 Player to my PC after losing it a while ago.

To my surprise, when I plugged in the device to my computer running Ubuntu 8.04, it did not detect it as usually Linux detects all my USB devices.

It's an MPIO MO100 and when it's plugged in, it starts recharging itself (the Mp3 screen shows) but Ubuntu will not detect it. This was not a problem on Windows however. It does not show up in the /media folder either.

Any advice? Thanks. :popcorn:

Sorry for the double post, just wanted to organize it a bit. :)

Bump. If this is the wrong section, can a mod please move it to the appropriate one? I thought it may have something to do with multimedia. :)
