    KLANTOP Digital Clip Music Player, Linux compatible?

    Hi,
    Mi Cowon iaudio 7 is showing its age. I need a compact music player and I'm considering the above-referred. I have looked on, but found no answer as to whether it will work as a MSD as the iaudio does with Fedora. Any info? Should I consider other options. I will need a player with a clip, and the KLANTOP seems a nice fit. Thanks in advance.

    Hello Boricua.

    From what I Understand your issue is with " player ",from my end part I do not see why VLC+extra will not do the work for you....
    when you say compact music player,you can chose the wide of the player the way you want.
    Now I have few Questions for you if you do not mind,just to get you fix with your issue.

    1 - have you install from the software Center all the add-ons?
    2 - have you install "Fedy" and add the Multimedia packages?
    3 - have you install all the "repo's to support all the Multimedia = audio/video?
    4- please look into that post and follow the steps to get things done right:

    Hope that will solve the issue for you.
    Good luck.

    Hi FFedora.
    Thank you for your quick response. Yes, I have all those steps covered. My concern is whether this particular music player will be detected by Fedora once I connect it via usb to my workstation, in order to transfer my music to it.

    Hello Boricua.

    If I Understand you right, the issue that you have is with mount your USB?
    if that so,here you have Video with how to get it done.

    https://linuxconfig.org/howto-mount-usb-drive-in-linux

    BTW - hope you have install p7zip+winrar/unrar on your system.
    and image manager to cover things around.
    BTW- I did not had any issue on my system with Audio/video USB Drive.
    Just try first to cover that post on your system,and if there are more issues will fix it.

    Hi and thank you again. I think I am also up-to-date in those topics. I am just trying to avoid the hassle of buying the player and finding out Fedora could not mount it.

    did you have try now to copy some Music/Video Clips/Mp3 to your Desktop/folder and try to play them now?

    One more thing for you to know.
    when you right click on the bar,add applets to the panel = you have Removable drives.



    so when you plug usb to your machine it will see it.

    Thanks FFedora. You persuaded me to try. I will buy it and eventually report back. The worst thing that could happen is sending the player back to Amazon.

    Re: KLANTOP Digital Clip Music Player, Linux compatible?

    Most usb devices that contain "storage", mount as a MTP storage device (phones, tablets, music players, etc.). Fedora has no problem with that. Depending your your particular desktop flavor of Fedora, it may be automatically recognized when plugged in. In Xfce, I use simple-mtpfs command to mount my usb mtp storage devices for transferring files to/from them.
    Code:
    # dnf install simple-mtpfs  mtplibs fuse
    Your desktop environment may already be well equipped to deal with it.

    Thanks PabloTwo. That's my bet. It has been awhile for me transferring files to an external music player.

    Well, it worked perfectly. I connected the KLANGTOP music player to my laptop and Fedora 28 mounted it at once and identified it as "K-183", even with the player turned off. I have no music in my laptop to try it, but I certainly don't expect any issue transferring music from my workstation.

    Thanks FFedora. I was debating with myself whether or not to mark this as "solved", but I guess it would be more helpful that way. So I just did it.

    As an update, I returned the KLANTOP player. It had nothing to do with Linux compatibility, which was just fine. Instead, I bought the similarly priced Wiwoo 16gb Portable Sport Clip MP3 Player. This one has a metal casing and works as well with Linux. I intend to keep it, since is performing as expected.
